After a morning of navigating through the breathtaking Tracy Arm Fjord, the Sapphire Princess set a course for our next port of call.  By early afternoon, she entered into the Gastineau Channel towards Juneau.  By one o’clock in the afternoon we had arrived safely in the Capital of Alaska.  We disembarked, along with hundreds of other passengers aboard the ship, and made our way along the dock to the shuttle bus which would take us to downtown Juneau.  In packing for our trip to Alaska, we had come prepared for cool weather.  We had been in for a surprise on Wednesday for it was extremely warm.  Everyone we passed was wearing his or her sweater tied around the waist.  It was so warm, we opted for an Italian Gelato ice cream instead of a hot latte. 

One of my favorite shops in Juneau is The House of Russia.  There, I found the most exquisite knitted Russian winter baby cap for my precious granddaughter who is due in mid-September.  Beautiful colors and style.  I also found the most beautiful – but unfortunately beyond my budget – dinnerware  from Poland.  There is a photo of the display in the slideshow below.  (The link is just to give you an example.  Unfortunately, The House of Russia does not have a website.)  I did come home with some Samovar tea that I purchased there.  It is so delicious and very fragrant!

We walked and shopped throughout Juneau until we both admitted we were tired.  We then made our way to the Mount Roberts Tramway.  The tram would take us to the top of the 1800-foot mountain top with the expansive views of Juneau below.  There was a Nature Center at the top of the mountain and there I had my first up close and personal encounter with a Bald Eagle.  She had been shot and was there recuperating at the Nature Center.  Thankfully, it wasn’t crowded at all when we were there.  I took photos (no flash) and talked softly to her.  I was thrilled when she kept turning her head to seemingly look at me.  I’m sure I’ll never be that close to this magnificent bird again, but I’m glad I was able to see her.

  

I love this photo. I was talking to her here and she would tilt her head and then open her eyes and look at me. Amazing!

 

 

Tomorrow’s post: Skagway, Alaska…my favorite port of call!

  • Dianne, thank you. I have a special place in my heart for eagles. I’m sending you a link to a story I wrote last year: http://pacificmelody.wordpress.com/2010/08/15/another-day-in-the-pristine-pacific-northwest/. It describes a day trip I took with friends last year and tells of our encounter with some other exciting and beautiful birds. Unfortunately there’s only one bird pic, but it was the cutest little owl, and I’d never seen one up close before. We got to see the hawks fly and hear their story. It was a lovely and unexpected experience.

    Please tell me what the music is that’s playing. It’s wonderful writing music!

    • Dianne says:

      Thank you, Melody. I’ll look forward to reading your story. If you’ll scroll all the way to the bottom of the blog and click on “pop out player” on the playlist music, a larger version will come up. You’ll be able to see all the songs and artists. I love the softer music to read and write by! I’ve found if I have songs with lyrics, I find myself singing the words instead of READING or writing! ;-)

  • Winslow Dog says:

    What a lovely set of shots. The eagle is fantastic! It is such a magnificant bird! I am really enjoying reading about your trip. Be thankful for cool weather… I don’t think Alaska hot is Florida hot! ;O)

    • Dianne says:

      Thank you! Seeing her was really a highlight for me. I grew up in Memphis, so I know all about those hot Southern summers! ;-) It will get hot here soon enough…hopefully soon enough to save our garden.

  • Theresa_BC says:

    She appears to be a young eagle. How kind of her to spend time with you. Nice.

    • Dianne says:

      I’m sorry she was shot and glad they were able to save her! The amazing thing was she appeared to be interacting with me…as you said, spending time with me. It was nice indeed.

  • Rosemary says:

    What amazing pictures Dianne ~ The eagle really appears to be interacting with you. They are such majestic birds. Lucky for you if the weather is cooler enjoy your trip!!! It’s scorching here and tomorrow another record breaking day. Whew!

    Hugs Rosemary

  • Kate Vatter says:

    Oh, Dianne, I am so jealous! When I was looking for a job, I tried so hard to find one in Juneau because I thought it was just beautiful. I’m glad you were able to visit! That town really is just built right into the base of the mountain, isn’t it? And I agree about that pottery…so beautiful! Don’t you hate it when you find something you absolutely LOVE but it just doesn’t fit into your budget? Gosh dang it! ;)

  • I lived in Juneau when I was first out of college some 30 years ago. It was a magical place locked in moss, rust and time. Before cruise ships spiffed up the place, curbs were 2 feet high, bars outnumbered t-shirt shops, and there was not one fast food place to be found. Juneau is still charming, but I’m glad I got to get lost in its time warp many years ago. -Tom
