Cruising: Ketchikan

Our last port before returning to Seattle ended up being Ketchikan, AK. It was a little rainy that day, but not horrible. We did not book any excursions in advance, but planned to check out the Lumberjack Show and purchase our tickets off the boat. However, when we walked over to buy tickets they were sold out. Instead, we took a trolly tour of the town.

Salmon capital of the world!
 
We saw a ton of bald eagles while on this tour! The one on the right is a bald eagle, but it is a juvenile so it hasn't turned white yet.
Lots of kelp on the shore during low tide
More eagles waiting for some lunch
  
It's hard to see, but there is a little crab between the rocks.

After the tour, we walked around their downtown area, bought some souvenirs and took some pictures. We were not in Ketchikan for very long.

Creek Street has an interesting history of brothels for the fishermen and miners back in the day
Then it was back on the boat to head toward Victoria, British Columbia.
