Dang Tourists

These two pictures deserve some commentary.   Here we are in Tracy Arm Fjord, which is billed as one of the most beautiful spots in Alaska.  The cruise ship had just made it up to Sawyer glacier.   It was absolutely incredible!   As soon as the ship turned around and started back down the Fjord, I looked around and noticed that most of the people left the deck.  Show's over.  Never mind that we have about an hour left in the Fjord.   So where did all the people go?  I looked down and saw the people shown in the pictures below.    They were buying t-shirts and sweaters.  I couldn't believe it.  Let's see, I could watch seals, waterfalls and glaciers, or I could shop for overpriced clothing from China.  What should I do, what should I do?

I was so dumbfounded by these people that I had to take a couple of pictures.
