The Beauty of Sitka, Alaska:
The first of Alaskan Amber. It’s not purchasable (??) here in the lower states. Drat.
The next day, in Skagway, we dined on glorious Alaskan RED King Crab – sweetest meat of all!
Oysters on the half shell with hotsauce and cocktail sauce…
Topped off with Alaskan Amber!
And Kenny was going to drink a pan of gold:
After Skagway, we landed in Icy Strait Point, where it was the coldest day we’d experienced, and it was a little drizzlie. There wasn’t much excitement to be had here.
We looked for bears, but then decided that may not be the wisest decision on our own….
Kenny innocently sips his cocoa.
And for our last day in Alaska, we landed in Sitka, which is my favorite port of call. This was the morning:
We took a Sea Otter and Wildlife excursion and saw this! Many Humpback Whales – bonus! Sea Otters, too, of course – and Bald Eagles by the dozens, and jellyfish, but alas, no bears in the wild.
Then, of course, we ate. Alaskan King Crab for me, and appetizers of halibut bites. Kenny had had enough seafood and opted for a burger.
Kenny did, however, have to sample The Best Clam Chowder Ever. Who could resist this on the menu?
And then we had beer.
