Well we finally made it to Alaska but not after leaving Prince Rupert and 4:30 a.m. Our initial stop was to be in Foggy Bay that night but we have weather coming in so decided that we would make it from Prince Rupert to Ketchikan in one day We had to go through the Dixon Entrance and once again we had beam seas and about 8 sec swells. Not as bad as Queen Charlotte Sound but still don’t like the rolling.
I guess our luck ran out after having almost beautiful weather for 2 1/2 weeks. It is raining in Ketchikan. But we were greeted by some beautiful eagles sitting in the marina. Ketchikan is about 15000 people but when the 4-5 cruise ships come in the town doubles. Ron and I rode our bikes into town yesterday and observed the tourist and how crazy it is with all those ships. Of course we are not tourist I even had a pedicure done lol……
Our friends Chick and Carel arrived last night so depending upon the weather we will either head out today or wait until tomorrow. Our first stop will be in the Behm Canal.
We probably won’t have much internet access so we will post as we can.
The first picture is a young eagle.
