Ketchikan, Alaska, USA
20.08.2014 - 20.08.2014
First port of call- Ketchikan.
Walked through historical town first. Like stepping into a movie set with little wooden stores (ex brothels) overlooking a rapid flowing creek.
Taxidermy services much called for.
Thousands of salmon visible attempting the 'run' up the rapids & one cheeky Harbour seal venturing up the creek to feed.
Did the Misty Fjords catamaran tour. Not too misty as it was a beautiful sunny day- very unusual. Wonderful scenery with steep cliffs leading straight down into the ocean surrounded with hundreds of islands & multiple float planes landing. Saw plenty of Harbour seals, starfish, large striped shrimp & lots of birds, but no bears yet!
Fantastic sunset tonight (8.30 pm)! Water tonight like a mill pond.
