My family decided to take day trip to Seward, AK for a whale watching cruise. Rain or shine, we were going and I am so glad we did. As we were leaving the harbor, this eagle was sitting on on of the bouy/pilings, in the pouring rain. He apparently was curious about that big black eye looking at him and we locked onto one another for a short bit...long enough to capture this image of him. I absolutely love eagles and am in awe of their beauty. To me they symbolize such awesome strength and grace. We ended up seeing some whales that day, along with countless other beautiful species of wildlife. The rain and fog only added to the beauty that day. A valuable lesson learned - not to wait out the weather...just go with it! You'll likely be glad you did!
