The end of a wonderful day

Now back to the boat trip from Seward.....


I'm not sure why the water is green here but on the way back we saw some more orca whales.




The boat captain is friends with the captain of the research vessel.  She knew that they made fresh chocolate chip cookies in the afternoon and wanted some.


I'm not sure how he got the bag in her net but he succeeded.  They were yummy cookies, no wonder she wanted some!


And then we sailed away.

Cookies and whales. How can it get much better. Great captures of the Orcas, and the catch of the day.

Goodness Gracious!!!! Having chocolate chip cookies while watching Orcas and seeing the gorgeous snow-capped mountains has to be FABULOUS.... What a life.... I'd LOVE it.

Hugs,

Beautiful scenery, whales and chocolate chip cookies! I don't think a boat ride could get any better than that.

Amazing set of photographs. I didn't realize chocolate chip cookies were so important to research but it sure made the pictures come out perfect.

Great photos of the orcas!
Funny that the 2 boats exchanged cookies by net.
