Day 1 (June 25, 2015) - MOSS Sea Kayak Trip - Glacier Bay, Alaska

Leaving Baltimore-Washington International Airport on a return trip to Glacier Bay, Alaska; 17 years have passed since living and working there.  How many times does nature remind us of simple lessons of life; there is darkness and light.  (...there was evening, and there was morning--the first day. Gen. 1:5)

And every house must have it’s builder
And I awoke in the house of God
Where the windows are mornings and evenings
Stretched from the sun
Across the sky north to south.
— R. Mullins

A full day of flights and a little light rain did not dampen our spirits.  Later in the trip we would have a period of cold hard rain that certainly tested our resolve.  We pushed through and were rewarded with fair weather days, great memories, strong comradery, lifted spirits and closeness to our Creator that is hard to match in our busy world.
