Meeting Alaska

Leave a comment

With snow-capped mountains outstretched she welcomes us. The sky is soft azure without even a whisp of a cloud. A single star twinkles up high. The scene is silent, except for the soft purr of the ship’s engines. The ship is gliding so slowly it barely makes a wake as we greet her.

The sun is yet to get out of bed. It will be 30 minutes before she properly wakes. But, she is starting to stretch. She slowly brings out her scarves of red hues, waving them softly to us.

My phone cannot do justice to the colours but my mind enjoyed them.

This is my first morning in Alaska. It’s a special meeting, one I have been waiting for for a long time. This image will be mine forever.

A reward for being an early riser.


Author: Travelling Macs

A mum to 2 grown up children with young families of their own, who always make me proud. I'm a wife, grandmother,friend, sister, a recently retired teacher and a beginning ukulele player. I love eating great food but am becoming interested in cooking. Love traveling around this great country in which I live and worldwide more recently. Often found traveling with my husband Brian. I write for pleasure and if it's read (and enjoyed) by others then that's a bonus! 2014 saw me begin the 'new' me. Working hard at leaving the fear of 'what if' behind and replacing it with YOLO adventures. :)

I enjoy reading comments so don't forget to add one please :)
