Fences

Fencing husky puppies away from harm

on Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau.

A very temporary fence around Taji

after she had been spayed.

It was supposed to keep her quiet, not stretch run etc.

As soon as we stepped out the back door she was

jumping up against said fence and

in her six weeks of captivity

nearly pushed the fence over.

So much for keeping her quiet. 🙂

We had probably the busiest year we will ever have in 2018.Late February we spent a weekend in Auckland

to celebrate the engagement of

our eldest son to his bride to be.

 

In June we were blessed with falling snow while

visiting the Columbia Icefield and Athabasca Glacier.

Most of us had not seen falling snow ever,

so a real delight.

A week or so later while cruising the Inside Passage

during  our stop at Juneau we flew

onto the Mendenhall Glacier to visit the huskies

and have a rife in a sled.

Another highlight.

 

 

  

We hardly seemed to be home

before preparations needed…

to be made for our road trip in New Zealand

prior to our son’s wedding.

A Māori Hāngī at the

Whakarewarewa Māori Village in Rotorua…

 

…and a visit to the Hobbit Movie Set at Matamata,

 

…were preludes to the big day.

 

 

The next morning back at

Auckland International Airport

for our flight home.

A fence needed to keep us out of the water

in Ketichikan, Alaska. The red clover leaf style sign is owned by

an Australian who uses

Australian Opal and Alaskan gold

to manufacture jewellery. 

 Never expected a fence on the Mendenhall Glacier.

Its purpose was to protect these puppies.

When planning our recent holiday, 

MGW wanted visit the huskies 

on Mendenhall Glacier.

It was one of two pre-planned treats

we allowed ourselves.

The huskies seemed as pleased to see us

as we were pleased to see them.

The hardest part of the excursion was

cuddling the husky puppies

while we filled in twenty-minutes

waiting for our ride down off the glacier.

That was the hardest part of the day!!!

Glacier is my word for this post.

One of the definitions found for canicular was

‘…a period of inactivity…’

This Husky puppy, on Mendenhall Glacier,

was quite content to have

a period of inactivity

after a five-minute playtime with tourists.


Margerie Glacier in a calving moment.

The size of the splash can be contextualised

when compared to these vessels.

 

After a few passes this feathered friend decided…

 

to hitch a ride while it caught its breath.

Not a very good photo but included as my marine photo

as it was my only otter sighting.

 

While there were plenty of guests for whom this would

have had a ‘Ho! Hum!‘ factor,

for our group of Aussies this was

a day to be described as scenic.
