Juneau, AK 8/2/2014

On the road again Saturday August 2
  Jensen-Olson Arboretum

 I thought the arboretum would be mainly trees but the flowers were gorgeous and abundant.

 August 2 and these single bloom peonies are blooming.  Mine are done by the beginning of June.

Macauley Salmon Hatchery's fish ladder

Salmon are working so hard to get back where they started 
Baby Salmon
Tanks of fish.  How would you like the person to clean these tanks and walk that wall?
Outdoor tanks for the teenagers salmon.
 Walked around downtown Juneau
 Saw the Tram ride.
 Metal sculpture depicting eagle and Raven.

 Beach on Douglas Island

 We attended Mass at St. Paul Church.
 Talking with parishioner they are so proud of their local artist who did all this original art.

 Stain glass windows were originally in a hospital.

 Totem poles at University of A;asla Southeast/Juneau campus

 Ever present raven.

In the afternoon we stopped at the ferry terminal to check on our trip to Sitka.  We were offered the option of taking a catamaran which would be faster than the regular ferry.  Sounds great.  We'd get to Sitka at noon instead of 6 pm.  Only concern was check in time was at 4 am (instead of 7:30 for a 9:30 trip) because the catamaran left at 6 am.   We decided to go early.  So instead of staying at the campground where we had paid (but only $5) we stayed overnight in the ferry terminal parking lot again.

We chatted with other RV'ers who were making the same trip.   Eventually we got to bed.
