I've been onboard the Safari Endeavour for one month now. I'm sitting in Juneau right now- on my one precious and unbearably short free hour -wondering how to possible write about the inside passage in such a small amount of time.
The boat has been exhausting and unrelenting, and it will continue to be for the rest of the season. But in between all that work comes the smallest, brightest joys, like sparks.
Speaking of sparks, the toilets sparkle at night. The bioluminescence glows blue green when you flush. I was a little surprised when, one night after work, I was hanging out in the engineer's room and he calls me from inside the bathroom, "Come in here and shut off the lights! You gotta see this!"
Strange things in strange places. That almost sums up this entire thing. It's not always good and it's not always bad.
I can do better than that, and I will, but for now....take a look at some of the places we've been.
