Off to the
ferry at a little after 1 a.m. with no sleep.After reasonably clear skies the evening before, it was raining before
we got to the ferry terminal.We must be
in Ketchikan.We waited in the terminal until it was time to
board the ferry.As they loaded the
ferry we were left sitting on the lot.Wondering why, we found out that they wanted to make sure no one else
was coming so they could load the car and trailer across the ferry for easy
exit.We had hoped to sleep on the
ferry, but that was not to be.By the
time we docked at Wrangell, we were exhausted.
at the campground and started to hook up in the site assigned by email, when a
40 foot motorhome pulled in along side of us.Unfortunately they are blocking our wireless signal.
setting up, I took a little nap as the exhaustion took over.Then it was off to explore the area a
bit.We got a map of the area, and went
first to PetroglyphBeach.We walked the beach looking for
petroglyphs.We found several as we
wander the peaceful area.The skies were
finally starting to clear.
headed out on the road south out of town.The road followed the water for quite a while before heading up the
mountain.Along the way we took a side
road up to PatsLake.The flowers are blooming here that bloomed back in May at home.
at the grocery store for the makings for dinner.After dinner we returned to PetroglyphBeach
to look for eagles as there is an active eagle’s nest there.Here I found the Yellow Rumped Warbler, at
least that is what I think it is, and the Cedar Waxwing.As we watched, one of the eagle’s from the
nest swooped down, grabbed a fish, and took it up to the nest.Tomorrow we are sleeping in and visiting some
of the historical sites in Wrangell.
