Ketchikan, Alaska

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Today was a great day! Temperature was very good and we dodged the rain quite well in the rain forest. Hopefully you have all received the first two blog entries.

The day began with a leisurely breakfast in the Lido Buffet & I had my usual omelet. We all disembarked from the boat early to find a place where we could access the internet, in what else a jewelry store, the streets of Ketchikan seem to have nothing but jewellery stores. Boarded the ship dropped off the iPad, collected our cameras and back packs and met our bus that would take us to the Herring Cove Bear Adventure. a-ketch-bearsThis was a really interesting tour through the Alaskan rain forest. We had numerous bald eagle sightings, saw salmon running up a small river and of course we saw Mom and her cub plus a young bear chasing and catching salmon.a-ketch-bear2

As part of the tour we also saw a raptor centre featuring birds that for one reason or another can not be released in the wild. We saw two eagles, An owl and a hawk. Also a Totem pole carver. We sailed from Ketchikan mid afternoon, spending most of the time just relaxing and watching the beautiful Alaskan scenery.

Kim, this is a Na na nana to you as I had a pork belly with CRACKLING , , , Na na nana for dinner. All in all a very good day!

Off to Juneau tomorrow.
