Catch You in Ketchikan
We had a mission of sorts when we arrived in Ketchikan. Avril's colleague raved about a restaurant in town called the Alaska Fish House. He loved theirsmoked salmon chowder, made with canned salmon. He had tried in vain to purchase their canned salmon online and hoped that we could pick up some and bring it back to him. We wandered the pretty downtown knowing we would make our last stop the Fish House. The town was crazy busy because there was at least four big cruise ships docked. We dodged many a seagoing tourist. It turns out there is no retail salmon sales at the Fish House! They must have seen the disappointment on our faces and were kind enough to send us down the street to the Salmon Market, where we loaded up on salmon for him and us. Another beautiful day in Alaska!
