In the land of the midnight sun, you should not assume that restful sleep will follow. Last night we had minimal sleep but were still ready to rock and roll today.
I took an exploratory junket this morning around downtown Juneau. I found a lovely park right down the hill from the hotel which is called Gunakadeit Park featuring artwork depicting a Tingit legend interpreted by Ray Peck.
Later posts from somewhere where it doesn’t require a PhD in wifi technology (to get the pictures from my camera to my iPhone to my iPad via email) will depict this colorful tale. I know, it is also a disappointment to me that I am not masterful at these things….
We had a very tasty lunch at Tracey’s Crab Shack, in the shadow of two huge cruise vessels. Our more modestly sized ship is moored further down the Gastineau channel (inaccurately described by me yesterday as the Salmon River.)
My big brother Larry and his wife Barbara arrive in a few minutes and then we will all be met. Ready to leave from the hotel. We have already met two lovely women, Jennifer and Nancy who hail from Chicago and who will be on the same cruise with us.
It should be a lot of fun.
