Off island

Back on the mainland of the Alaskan panhandle. Yesterday began with a whale just next to the island.

We were picked up and got to watch long lines of halibut (and lots of starfish) brought on board.

This starfish was sort of creepy and only a few inches.

After the fish was prepared and iced, we steamed north to Juneau and passed six rainbows!

All in all, a beautiful trip. This morning began with a four am alarm and our journey home will end three pm tomorrow: twelve hours today (cheap flights, too many connections) an overnight in Manhattan (island to island travel) and a six hour train home. Phew.

  1. Lynne, what wonderful videos! We’re having almost-autumn weather in the Adks. So you’re leaving one beautiful place and returning to another. We look forward to seeing you two.
