Last Days…..Skagway to Seattle to ?…

Howdy All,

As our trip winds down, I think we are all ready to get home. Getting up everyday and packing up to hit the road on a regular basis, gets tiring.

We have now traveled from Skagway, via the Motor Vessel “Columbia,” which is part of the Alaska Marine Highway System to Bellingham. The “highway” is owned and operated by the State of Alaska. They do a great job!

Howdy…

Thursday morning we departed for the city of Haines, AK. The 147 mile ride through 30 minutes of rain and at 45 degrees was great. We found the town quaint. We had lunch at the harbor, where we waited 45 minutes for a ham and turkey club. It was great when we got it! But, good grief, 45 minutes for a sandwich?
