Over 3000 miles!

We have passed the 3000 mile mark of the trip… Catching up with Stacy and Frank has been wonderful. They took us to the Glacier where Jessamine had her first taste of glacier ice and we looked for bears that never showed.
Our first morning in Juneau was beautiful! We enjoyed having coffee and watching the cruise ships coming down the channel and docking while bald eagles flew by. We drove through downtown Juneau (which took about 2 minutes) and met Stacy and Frank at the Twisted Fish for lunch. The fresh fish in Juneau is so delicious.
Frank had to return to lunch but Stacy joined us to pick fresh blueberries. We picked up the dogs (Duke & Koa) and drove up the mountain where the blueberries grow wild on the ski slopes. Robin has said that she won’t go on a ski slope again after breaking her leg on them earlier in the year, but decided that hitting the slopes to pick berries would be ok. We had each picked a lot of berries before the rain ran us off the mountain. This might not be a bad thing because we might still be up there picking them… they are all over the mountain and it was fun. Even Duke picked berries, but he ate all of his.
We returned to the condo to put on dry clothes then headed to Frank’s parents, John and Carmen’s for dinner. John had caught some salmon and Carmen cooked it up for us. This is the best meal of the trip! The entire evening was fantastic with Frank, John and Carmen telling Tlingit stories as the sun set.
When we returned to the condo Frank called to say that there were humpbacks in the channel. Jessamine sat at the window determined to see them and Robin fell asleep watching for them. What an amazing evening…
