In Sitka, we did an Otter/Sea Life excursion. The sea otters are nothing but adorable! We had to be very quiet around them, or they will dive under the water and hide. They eat fish, clams, shrimp, and this grassy stuff that grows in the water. I want a sea otter!
These are the only moose we saw. You can tell how much rain they get in Ketchikan - look at the green moss growing on his feet! And look at my hair - another reason I'd never live in Ketchikan - they get 152 inches of rain in a year!
This is as close as I got to a bear! They have brown and black bears in Alaska. I was hoping we would see one, but no luck!
Stuffed moose are cuter than the real thing! We were supposed to go ziplining to my death while in Ketchikan. Unfortunately, the winds were too strong, and they had to cancel the excursion. I really was disappointed because I was looking forward to it. We did a tour of the town instead.
Our day in Sitka was the best! After the sea otter excursion, we spent the day checking out the town. We came across Two Chicks and a Stick. What a cute booth - this is Amy. She is one of the chicks, and her sister is the other chick. Their Dad is a commercial fisherman, and they go out fishing with him. She was so interesting, and we had a nice chat. We ate lunch here - salmon on a stick with rice. She had a rub on the salmon, and it was delicious!
