FRI. 8/11 We arrive about noon. We tour the town on foot. They have 200 to 250 days of rain here. It was cloudy but no rain. Ketchikan is a salmon capital, has two fish canneries and huge pulp mills. We had a tour to the Totem Bight Park where we saw a number of poles and the Clan house. All the poles tell a story. We then went back and walked to Creek Street. This used to be a street for brothels. It is now full of shops. The houses are on stilts. One is called Dolly’s House which is now a museum. We even had an ice cream cone while strolling along the board walk.
The show Fri. night was called a Sentimental Journey. Before we went in we were out on Upper Promenade deck looking for whales. We did see two orcas near shore away from the ship. You could see them with Binos. Very few whales on this trip. Tomorrow we start for Canadian waters and home. We will cruise the Inside assage all day,
