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?
