We finally made it to Ketchikan on Friday...
Saturday it was rainy and cloudy all day... but we are here.
Everything is green.... from the mountains (well at least the bottom 2/3rd's!... tops are still white)...
to the rocks...
even the roots and ground are green.
We have seen our first 8-10 Alaskan Bald Eagles, a few gray whales from across the bay and about 3 harbor seals.
This little guy was just below a large fresh water rapids and I think was just enjoying the cold fast moving water. He would swim up roll on his back and just slowly swim up in the fast moving flow.
Just a side note, we have come to really enjoy the food and hospitality at the Sweet Mermaids, which is just a couple doors down from the Gilmore Hotel, where we are staying. Good food, great coffee and really nice staff. When we come back, this will be a place we will definitely stop again!
So if you ever take a cruise to Alaska and or stop by Ketchikan, we would recommend them.
