Skagway

Cruise day 5Posted by Fraser Smith 2013-06-10 17:11:24
Skagway of course was the bike ride down the mountain which, much to her surprise, Barbara really enjoyed (when you click the link, click "Map" in the top right of the map and select "Satellite" to get a better idea ot the terrain). Hector too, of course. It was a nice day although a bit breezy at times.Once kitted out we had a bit of a practice around the layby before setting off down the mountain.
We stopped several times on the way down to look at the views which were really nice.Hector of course made many new friends during our trip and people love having their photos taken with him. This is one of the guides.This was our visit to the Red Onion Pub which was Skagway's version of the Red Dog in Juneau. Great fun. The menu had things like Trollop, Menage a Trois and Strumpet. This is a photo of Fraser and Hector getting to know one of the "waitresses" who happened to come from the south of England. In the evening we took the train back up the mountain (when you click the link, click "Map" in the top right of the map and select "Satellite" to get a better idea ot the terrain). This took us further up than we had gone on the bikes. We saw 2 of the 3 black bears that were sighted on the trip. Wonderful. Then it was back onto the boat for dinner and setting sail for our next adventure!
