Margerie Glacier

I got a pretty nice view of the Margerie Glacier from my walk around the deck of the Noordam. Those of you who have been to Alaska know that the glaciers "calve" before your eyes, meaning that pieces break off and drop into the ocean. You get a pretty nice warning crack first and then try to guess which part will drop. It's exciting, but sad at the same time since you're actually watching the death of a glacier. Pretty cool to watch though. And I'm glad that I got to see the glacier in Alaska before it floats by Amelia Island...
