Icy Strait Point
We were at Icy Strait Point only for a few hours, but it was very nice port.
Several Eagles were around the ship.
The views of the mountains were great.
We did go on shore to visit the museum about the salmon canning that they did here in the past. It was a bit too realistic.
They have what they claim is the longest zip line in the world with six 5,330 foot ziplines dropping 1330 feet and reaching speeds of 60 mph. I can believe it because it starts at the top of a mountain ending near the ship dock. No, we did not go on the zipline. Maybe if we go on another Alaska cruise.
We headed back to the ship so Mom could go to the next class at America's Test Kitchen.
I attended a Thomas Kincaid seminar. I did not know that he painted the letter N in his paintings as a tribute to his wife. As a hint, he would put a number near his signature of how many times it could be found in the painting. They had nine on display and, of course, to sell.
Later in the day we watched a whale and a seal from the balcony. I decided to take a few pictures of the art and artifact displays on ship. They were even more incredible in person.
Then we decided to walk around the ship and came upon the cruise director and the instructor for the America's Test Kitchen at a sip and savor event. We had a great conversation with both while enjoying a glass of wine. The event offered a choice of two select wines for only $5 and speciality appetizers. I really enjoyed talking with the test kitchen instructor.
Dinner was once again great. We enjoyed sitting near the windows watching for wildlife.. Here is the menu.
Off to the mainstage for a performance by a Mentalist/Comedian. He was very funny. After that, the crew had a talent show. They did a great job and were able to present traditional show of the Philippines.
Here is the picture of our towel animal.

I think this is the first Kincaid I had seen in person. They had an amazing amount of detail.
