|the tide water glaciers of College Fjord|
|entering Glacier Bay|
The ship stopped for awhile when we reached the massive Margerie Glacier (shown below) to give us sometime not just to take photos and admire the views but to be able to witness and feel the majestic panorama of this massive wall of ice that's actually a few stories high. At this point we were literally surrounded by glaciers and ice. Inside the bay, our big cruise ship was transformed into a tiny powerless toy boat amidst the huge boulders of ice. We were blessed with a bright and sunny day. The color of the water was deep blue green in some parts. Mini floating icebergs were also amazing to see and hear as they move along the water.

|it was a calm and peaceful day at the bay...from our balcony, we admired the panoramic views of the glaciers reflected on the water...only the sound of the small icebergs happily floating along occasionally disrupted the silence|
