The ship pulled into the pretty fishing village right on time. We were warned that Ketchikan has a high amount of yearly rainfall, more than Scotland...but we needn't have worried. The weather was magnificent with most of us ending up feeling hot!
Ketchikan has the world's largest collection of standing Totem Poles. We visited one of the major location, Saxman Totem Park, independently. The taxi driver kindly pointed out a bald eagle's nest on the way and we saw many more during the day!
We moved on to explore the historic district of Creek Street, an area with antique boardwalks built over Ketchikan Creek. Unfortunately, we were not there at the right time to view the salmon run much to the disappointment of some. A quick walk through the town and we were back on to the ship.
Dinner was a feast of Alaskan King crab! I have to comment that the food on the ship has been very good. It was much improved than when we were last on the Fantasy. Unfortunately Jonah was feeling unwell, and so he and I skipped comedy show and went to bed instead.
