Day 67: AMHS Columbia, Inside Passage, AK

Morning fog, afternoon sunshine, warm.

The ferry stopped in Ketchikan and we disembarked.

Ketchikan was a lively little town with two cruise ships in port. We walked around and remembered Ketchikan 15 years ago when we were here last.

Pinks, or humpy, salmon were in the stream where last we remembered sockeye, but it was mid-July in 2004.

First we visited the Bawden Street Brewing Co and tried a flight. Then we found The Alaskan Fish Company and I thought the fish was cooked to perfection, and the smoked salmon chowder was equally delicious.

We did the walking tour of town and found a bar where beers were $3.50 each and made a new best friend, Grayson from the navy. He let us try out the wolf skin he just bought.

Then we had crepes from Alaska Crepes, which also hit the spot.

The weather was again beautiful and it was a great day. Only one morning left in Alaska.
