Rain or shine… It was cold and rainy in Ketchikan, but that was not going to keep us on-board. However, after walking around town this may be my least favorite stop.
Our ship was docked in the harbor until afternoon so we caught a ride in one of the ship’s tenders. When we arrived we choose to take the road less traveled and came across this old-fashioned city saloon. It was still early so we opted for the espresso. But how cute.
My new friend – both of us were trying to stay warm and dry. Alaska weather in June is very fickle, so I packed clothes I could mix, match and layer. I threw in these old short boots, because they’re easier to pack than my rain boots and I didn’t mind if they got wet or muddy.
This jacket has been on repeat for the entire cruise. It really was perfect for keeping me warm and dry. Of course, an umbrella never hurts!
There were literally blocks of stores, one right after the other, selling gifts, jewelry, art or furs (this was my not so favorite part, but I may be alone on this one). Unfortunately for the vendors we were not in the market for their wares – we just kept on truckin’.
I found this little piece of heaven tucked away along a quieter road. Mother nature can be so beautiful, even when it rains.
Happy Monday and tomorrow’s post Vancouver!
