I woke up looking at a snow capped mountain..... It was breathtaking. All day yesterday as far as you could see all around the ship was water and sky. Then I open my eyes and see Land-HOOOOOOOOO. I was so happy.
|The Port of Ketchikan from our stateroom|
When they finally opened it and we got to shore we had about 30 minutes to kill until we had to meet up with our tour guide.
Finally it was time to meet up with our alaskan fishing guide. Her name was Beth. She was bad ass. She didn't make us put on all that stupid fishing gear... and I asked why the life jacket.. and she said.. well just incase a whale decides to pop up and tip us over... well that shut me right up....
She got us about 45 minutes out on a 20 foot skiff and we began to fish.

Well sharyl and I had to pee.. and we found a make shift toilet that they had made next to a tree.. it had a door and sides.. but, no back! hahahah

After our bellies were full and we had some coffee and conversation.. we all got back onto the skiff and headed back for mainland..
We threw left over fish parts at them.. and they were diving for them and it was simply stunning.
We got back to the dock and practically ran back to the pier because we had like 30 minutes and 45 minutes until we were leaving that port. It was an all day adventure that we were just blessed with.
Once we were back on the ship.. we all had couples massage appointments.
no seaweed involved with this :) We had two mussiest and they put us in this big massage room with two beds.. they let us get situated then came back in and gave us 50 minute massages...
we went back to the room, showered and met up with Sharyl and Eric again, to get us some grub in the chow hall.. and then back to sleep!
