Bird Creek...two different seasons, two different views

Bird Creek last summer
Bird Creek this winter...unbelievable!

Friends and family

Dinner out. MY wonderful husband and our friends
My hubby and our neighbor and friend
My amazing son...he is a little cold standing in this frozen cave
My beautiful daughter admiring the frozen falls
Our wonderful neighbors and friends

The trip home...

The trip about some snow?

Notice the snow is above the car!
The frozen Turnagain Arm! We watched Buluga whales swim up this inlet last summer. What a difference.
There are numerous frozen waterfalls on the way home.

Let the plunging begin...

And the PLUNGING begins!

These are the 'belly floppers'
This man was clearing the snow off his boat while the plunge was going on! I thought it to be a bit ironic!

Seward Polar Bear Festival Weekend

My beautiful daughter at the waterfall.

This waterfall in Seward is just amazing when it is half frozen.

This is a young, Bald Eagle who just wanted to pose for all us of interested in taking his picture!

The dock with everyone waiting for the Polar Bear Plunge to begin!
