Rebel Without a Cause AND Lost in America. These are our August movie prompts. Since I'm cruising in Southeast Alaska when this blog entry goes live, I chose to write about how good it feels to get lost in this American state. Think about it: Glacier Bay alone, is bigger than Connecticut. Alaskans call Texas a cute little state. This place is BIG and you can easily get lost here. My husband and I can cruise for days and never see another boat. We'll put down anchor in a huge cove and no one else will join us. Passages miles across and miles long...and we're the only trawler taking that route. A little scary? Yes. But neat, as well. When we anchored below Reid Glacier, all by ourselves, a giant grizzly ambled along the beach, unaffected by our presence. In Fingers Bay, a moose cow strolled all the way around the cove. She, not we, owned the beach. In three years, the population of sea otters has risen from 1000 to 9000 and the humpbacks and crested puffins are everywhere. Truth is, you want to get lost in the big, beautiful state of Alaska. We're so glad to be here!
