Sunday, June 12
I’m sitting at a deli counter in Ketchikan's Safeway store, about a half mile away from the boat. The picture window in front of me frames the boat traffic in Tongass Narrows; cruise ships, coast guard vessels, power boats, sailboats, fishing boats, skiffs and even the ever-present float planes taxiing along. The view is interesting enough to make me forget the rainy walk to get here, today’s closest internet access. Note: The harbor office said they do have wi-fi in the harbor, but we’re not moored where we can receive it. Something about being at the end of the pier, surrounded by steel-hulled boats… whatever! Note to self: Walks are healthy exercise after nine days afloat.
