The dancers will perform tomorrow when 1,840 cruise passengers will arrive.
We are enjoying visiting without all those tourists.
From our campsite we took a walk to Starrigavan Creek because we heard the bears may be going after the salmon. We didn't see the bears but had an unbelievable treat.
Two couples were also watching the salmon run and they had a Jack Russell terrier. The dog as was excited about the fish so the owners said "go get em." She sure did. She ran in around the stream trying to catch one and finally did. It was amazing to see this little dog wrestling the fish after she caught it.
