vehicles. We stayed in a tiny hallway room
with double bunks and a bathroom.
The room didn’t really matter because
we spent our time on deck looking
at mountains, glaciers and wild life.
I was in total awe at the wondrous scenes
that abound in Prince William Sound.
It was mesmerizing to see
Dolphins, a school of Black and White Whales, sea
otters and other schools of fish.
As we neared Valdez, I found myself talking to
talk dark stranger (I couldn’t resist that one) next to me.
He was taller than me and not bad looking either.
I told him that mom and I had no way to see Valdez
because we were afoot. He promptly made
a deal with me that I could not refuse. He
had more than one vehicle to drive off the
ferry and if I drove his pickup truck off
for him, we could drive it around
Valdez. What a deal! That is
what we did, I drove his truck and
later we left it where he could retrieve it.
We did not get off at Cordova because the
ferry was returning pronto so we only saw
Cordova from the deck.
