A wedding gift

29 Aug

Even though we got married 7 months ago, Peter (probably feeling bad that he invaded our romantic year-long honeymoon) finally got around to giving us a wedding gift–a 6 hour boat ride out of Seward to view the wildlife of the Kenai Fjord National Park and glaciers. And of course, Peter joined us, which was a gift in and of itself. We bundled up in every article of clothing we brought with us, including our fab West Marine jackets, and headed out for a chilly day on the water.

It was cold and drizzly but not foggy so we were able to see a ton of animals. We saw harbor seals, stellar sea lions, humpback whales, a huge pod of orcas, puffins, and a bald eagle.

The views from the water were also spectacular! We saw a few glaciers from a distance and got really close to one that was cracking while we were there. There were chunks of ice in the water!! Just an unbelievable sight!

It was an amazing day and we are so thankful to Peter for making this happen. It was also a great way to send Peter off.

So Peter, is this a good enough thank you card, or do we need to snail mail you something??

While we have been eagerly waiting for our wedding video, watching this on repeat has definitely sufficed! Enjoy!

Here’s another view with a cute ending 🙂
