I look at the itinerary to get a bearing of today’s events.
One of my favorite things daily on the ship to see was the large chessboard. I wanted to play it, but just couldn’t find anyone willing. Perspective, small picture versus big picture is everything.
Mom, sis, and I grabbed a quick breakfast.
And walked to the elevators. A reminder, it is Wednesday.
It is a ten to fifteen minute walk from the ship to the town, and so we walk.
Some local history about Skayway and its Historic Waterfront.
I turn back to look at the beautiful mountains. They are such a pretty sight.
We walk into one of the tourist places: M&M Tours.
All signed up and ready to go.
We continue out walking to the city.
And officially to the Klondike Goldrush National Historic Park area, and Skagway, Alaska.
We catch the bus we are supposed to get to drive to Frasier, British Columbia.
Get our introductory tour messages, and double checking to see if we have carried our passports. And we are off, on bus-ride journey to Frasier, British Columbia.
After we arrive back, Mom goes back to the ship. My sis and I decide to walk around the Skagway Downtown District.
Lots of open road space.
It is a cute small town. Cute, and very very very small.
We decide to stop at Northern Lights Pizzeria for some local food.
My sister and I get the Captians Plate to share. It is a combination platter of homemade deep fried Alaskan, Halibut, Salmon & Shrimp, served with cocktail & tartar sauce. It is quite large and overwhelming. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of the food, so you will just have to imagine what fried seafood look like. 🙂
After lunch, we continue to walk around the town. We have time to spend before our zip line tour begins. So we walk around some of the streets curiously and I take pictures along the way.
We decided to peek in the Klondike Gold Rush National Park Visitor Center.
And say hello to the National Parks Ranger, and check out the various exhibits and history.
Our bus arrives.
We get on board, say hello to our driver Kiki, and then off we go to the Grizzly Falls Ziplining Expedition.
During our return from the ropes course, we pass the other entrance sign of Skagway on the other end of town.
And we stop by the Fairway Market to pick up some groceries and supplies.
We notice some passionate political supporters showing casing their support for Trump.
We pass by, but avoid the Alaska Liquor Store.
Walk towards the Skagway Harbor and the beautiful snow capped mountains.
And head back to the cruiseline.
As we board we notice the graffiti on the rocks.
Back on the ship, I recalled that there was some Martini tasting onboard the ship: $3 a martini.
These martini’s are delicious.
I talk to some the people at the bar and make some new friends: Nicola from Australia and Gaby from Mexico.
Time to eat!!! And have great conversation while doing it.
Curry Coconut Chicken
And for dessert,
Hazelnut Mousse Cake no sugar added.
And when we arrive back to our room, my sister and mom are awe-ing at the bedside decorations.
