Went on another cruise… this time with Jim. We did the Inside Passage tour out of Vancouver on Holland America. We went to Juneau, where we helicoptered up to the Herbert Glacier and got to hike around on it. Then off to Skagway, where we took the White Pass Railroad up through the White Pass to Frasier, Canada after which we biked down from the White Pass back to Skagway. Our final stop was Ketchikan, where the six of us in our little family reunion chartered a fishing boat and went out in the rain and actually caught fish: 5 coho salmon and 4 pink salmon.
Last night out Jim’s brother Bob went to the bingo game and won a free 7 day cruise for two… Lucky guy. He bought the wine that night at dinner.
Got home to discover that sometime in the last week someone went into the electrical service closet off our carport and hit the light switch. That is what our two freezers are plugged into. Unfortunately, when the light did not go on, the person did not hit the switch a second time, so when we came home the freezers were off and completely defrosted. We turned them back on again immediately; doesn’t look like anything spoiled but they still aren’t re-frozen completely yet after 24 hours. Needless to say, I have a pretty good idea who did this, but no one is admitting to anything… and making accusations could cause friction with the neighbors who did actually look after the place pretty well. Oh well. So all my vegetables and fruit are now frozen in lumps rather than individually they way they were before. I could be throwing them all away right now… along with half a beef…
So, for right now, I will leave you with the shot I took of my souvenir t-shirt from the Skagway adventure. I was highly amused by the logo of the Sockeye Cycle company which rented us our bikes and guided our coast down from the White Pass.
Apparently, a fish can ride a bicycle. If you have a good enough imagination….
