it did! The following day, of course. We took the marine pilot off the cruise
ship Mercury and he told us that they had the most incredible experience of watching
a mile and a half of the glacier's face calve like dominos. He said the noise
was thunderous and the wave that resulted completely covered a small island in
the bay. He said the force of it was so enormous that if the Mercury had been
closer it could have caused the ship to roll. You have to be very careful around
an active glacier because they are so powerful and unpredictable. Just the small
bits that calved in the above pictures made a sound like thunder clapping right
over your head and the waves produced rocked our boat to the point I thought I'd
get seasick...... It was quite an experience and I can't wait to go back with
the video camera next week.
Thank you for letting me share my pictures with you....
