There was a shuttle running from the ship to the town all day, and it dropped off right below the Mount Roberts tram up to the top of the mountain (nope!).

We got round trip tickets to the Mendenhall glacier ($60), and headed from the visitor center to the Nugget Falls trail and viewing area (3 miles).  I have to say, with all my bitching and complaining, the view was astounding, and so much better than outside the visitor center.

 My Bearpaw boots are the best damn walking shoes I've ever had!  No blisters or pinched toes, just cozy comfort all day. I wish I could wear them to the parks, but they're too warm.  The falls were as close as you could get to the glacier as possible, and it was super windy between them - and COLD!

 As soon as we stopped moving and got closer to the falls, it was freezing.  Of course, Keith didn't have a jacket on, just his warm shirt, which he actually took off for pictures - he looked like he was going to jump in!

We got back to town around 11:30 and walked around - checked out some lumberjack shirts for Keith ($130!), and walked through town to Tracy's Crab Shack for lunch, where everyone raves about the food.  Keith had the crabcakes, and I had the crab bisque; holy shit, that was a religious experience.  If I had the appetite, I would have ordered another gallon to smuggle back onto the ship!

Back on the ship, we "napped" until we were underway, and then we went shopping.  Picked out a few beach towels (we use them daily as bath towels), ornaments, car magnets, and a fleece throw for $125.  I asked one last time if they had any other styles of Dooneys in the back, all they had was a weird Star Wars one. Sad Coco is sad.

We swapped out the popcorn bucket for a non-janky one, then went to dinner at Animator's Palate. The whole dinner service, the ship was listing seriously to port - we didn't know why until we go out. They served the best red pepper dip EVER with the bread - I ate two servings!

RECIPE:

Ingredients: two 16 oz jars of sliced roasted red peppers
½ tablespoon garlic, finely chopped
½ cup olive oil
1 tablespoon bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste

Heat oven to 325 Degrees. Place all ingredients into your blender. Blend until smooth Pour into small foil pan (disposable so you can leave it at the picnic) Sprinkle parsley on top for color. Bake for 30 min. Serve warm with your favorite cracker.


Dinner Crew

I had a shrimp appetizer, lobster, and multiple desserts - today was an eating day for Baby Hammer!  After dinner, we attempted to go for a walk on deck, but one whole side of the ship was closed off to passengers, due to super high winds.  High, meaning 60+ knots per hour - that's a lot of wind!  We got a big surprise the next day in port at Ketchikan that was wind-related...



Random notes during dinner - I have 7 pregnancy dwarves:

Wrathful
Lazy/Slothful
