Alaska '08 Day 59, Sitka to Ketchikan
Sat Aug 9, 2008
Saw a few whales from the ferry. Emmy saw one "come all the way out of the water" right next to the boat.
Between the stops, 2 kids movies, meals and snacks the kids didn't really get bored.
Had a good halibut sandwhich on the ferry.
Kake was a rough looking indian town. Petersburg looked pretty small, had one camper get off. Nice houses in Petersburg. Wrangell looked bigger. The Wrangell Narrows start just after (south of) Petersburg. The narrows did not look as narrow as the passage just north of Sitka. There were quite a few fishing lodges on both sides of the narrows south of Petersburg. Saw lots of people fishing coho from 16' lunds.
We hit Wrangell at 9PM and saw the sun set. After that there wasn't anything to see until Ketchikan.
