This will be my last post on Alaska. I figure you guys are getting tired of my photos.
I've only posted a fraction of the ones I took...
Our third stop in Alaska was Ketchikan. These little islands were everywhere. It was so beautiful!
The port was so small we had to take lifeboats to shore.
You could actually rent some of these homes. The government built cabins on some of the islands and you can rent them very reasonably (less than a hotel) for a week at a time. How cool would that be? Renting an island for a week!!!
We went on a wildlife tour and saw rafts of sea otters. They were sooooooo cute!
Sitka. I went on a crab excursion. The bus ride to the crab boat was amazing. Sadly, most of the photos were blurry because they were through the bus windows. We did see lots of eagles. What was surprising was how many were sitting together in trees. There were probably a dozen in one tree. They were near an area with lots of fish.
If you look closely you can see some very colorful starfish on this rocky bank.
This is one of the crab pots they pulled up on the tour. The crabs were beautiful.
I didn't hold one though. I figured I'd have bad dreams....
This is the splash of the porpoise I saw....the only one in the whole trip.
This is an old crab canning plant that was along the tour route.
The tour ended with a fantastic crab feast. I've never had crab that was this good...it was fantastic!
I tried a little local flavor....(not bad)
some pretty desserts from the cruise ship...
some monkey business...
I hope you have enjoyed my Alaska photos. I am so glad I went with my husband on his company trip this year. It was an amazing opportunity to learn about "The Final Frontier"...ALASKA.
Happy writing, blogging, and reading my friends....
