Election Day … & we’re in Ketchikan

Well, as in my Facebook post, here we are in Ketchikan , Alaska – salmon capital of the world as back home 14 million Australians go to the polls. I type this having watched lots of salmon struggling to swim upstream – I’m sure there’s some sort of allegory in there!

We docked at 2 pm, after we all enjoyed a wonderful morning’s cruising – cloudless skies, warm early fall temperatures – just right for having a good read of the Australian morning newspapers on my iPad.

Ketchikan is more enjoyable for me than Juneau; not sure why. Perhaps a surer sense of its history.

I took a decent walk to the Native Totem Centre, near a salmon hatchery. An impressive museum, designed to preserve the traditions of the Tlingit First People’s and others.

On the way there, I passed the famous Creek St – boardwalk & shops on one side of a creek … you can catch salmon after salmon journeying upstream.

Hard to believe this cruise will be over in a bit over 36 hours time. Cruising the Inside Passage all day tomorrow en route to Vancouver.

Cheers,
David
