June 14 – Ketchikan

Today we cruise toward Ketchikan, Alaska’s first city, known as the “Salmon Capital of the World” and the “City of Totems.” Along the way we passed a family of humpback whales.  Judging by the backs in view and the number of “blow spouts,” there must have been at least three of them.

And yes, we did find another yarn shop here in Ketchikan, completing Billie’s triple-play-purchase of Alaskan yarn.   (Don’t forget to click to see larger images.)
