Walking Peace

Who knew that cruise ships in Alaska had the perfect walking conditions. Plenty cool enough for a fleece and long tights, delightfully flat surfaces (well that had to be pretty much a given) and unbelievable scenery. Well, the scenery’s probably a given as well, but thanks to a wonderful break in the weather, Alaska was incredibly generous with us.

This first morning was a bit misty and so the mountains winked in and out of sight. We entered the Inside Passage just about an hour before I went for a walk. It was easy keeping up the pace when you were trying to catch another glimpse of what you’d just seen and ascertain if, in fact, it really was that beautiful. It was. It was such a feast of the senses, that now, no longer there, it’s hard to comprehend!

Where are my pics, you ask? I don’t have the kind of skill to capture that beauty… there are too many wonderful pics out there… but round and round and round… As the Navajo prayer says:

With beauty may I walk
With beauty before me may I walk
With beauty behind me may I walk
With beauty above me may I walk
With beauty all around me may I walk
And so it was…
