Sunday was a "cruise all day" day as we made our way thru Canadian waters to the Inside Passage of Alaska. I spent limited time on the deck because it was not exactly balmy. But, lucky for me I was up on the deck for this. We passed a small island (one of many) and all of a sudden this boat appears and the guy starts playing "Oh Canada", then "The Star Spangled Banner" and then "When the Saints Go Marching In" on his trumpet accompanied by lots of cheering and clapping from all the people on deck. What a hoot ( or toot, lol). You can learn all about him on AlertBayTrumpeter.com
You see these planes everywhere...how else would you get anywhere? Most of these towns/cities in the Inside Passage are not connected by roads ( something we, in the Lower 48, certainly take for granted).
Here we are ...Alaska, the Last Frontier. It is about 9:00AM and we are only in Ketchikan until 1:00, but we have plenty of time to roam the town. Please note that we are all wearing warm clothes...the temp is about 50 and it is drizzly.
Not sure I would want to hold a BBQ on that deck...looks like the weather takes a toll on anything made of wood
The sun was actually almost out for a few minutes as we walked around town and then the rains began in earnest. We ducked into a lunch place for Halibut and Chips. This is when we learned that although this is Halibut Country it is still $18 a pop for the lunch sized portion at the counter with plastic utensils...Say What??
Off we go for an afternoon and evening cruise to Juneau. It seems, looking back, that the sun came out most days as we left town. There were only two sunsets all week for Mr. Photo to capture, so that kind of tells the weather story.
