ice at the beach last Tuesday

Movement like jello--that's how slow it was--like a think jello with waves rolling underneath.
High tide. Waves came in under the ice right up the beach ice that was laying there in slabs.

I have never seen the ocean like this before. I have seen ice especially from an airplane window flying into Anchorage--they fly right over the inlet up there before they touch down-ice is laying there. This was all new to me. We took these photos on Tuesday evening and watched the sunset. As you can tell the sun was shining but that was the end to the clear blue skies and no precipitation for over two weeks. See next posting!

How interesting Fran, what a site that must be.

That is very interesting! Especially the last one. I can only imagine how cool it would be to actually be there to see it!
