Leavenworth, Washington to Ketchikan, Alaska

We made it to Alaska! We left Leavenworth Friday morning and drove through the mountains to Bellingham. Duke left me and the bags at the Alaska Ferry Terminal He took the car to park it at the airport where we will pick it up on our return from Juneau. He took the City bus back to the ferry terminal.

The ferry ride from Bellingham was relaxing, scenic and fun. We have a little cabin but spent a lot of our time sitting in the front observation lounge.

Most of the way was exceptionally calm in narrow water passages between islands but there were gentle swells in the open water crossing of Queen Charlotte Sound. We each took Dramamine. It did the trick but it also made us incredibly sleepy. We ended up sleeping a lot yesterday. The food in the dining room has been very good.

We arrived in Ketchikan for a two hour stop this morning at seven. Right now we are sitting at McDonalds having coffee after walking down the shore seeing the sights.
