Back to Haines
Thursday, July 9, 2009 - This morning the four of us went downtown to visit the shops and see Haines. We walked along Main Street and down to the waterfront and then drove over the Fort Seward. We took a self-guided walking tour of the old fort including parade grounds and the outsides of barracks, fort headquarters, officers’ quarters, and the captain’s house. In the old fire house Bill noticed several old fire helmets so he set out on a mission to try to get one. We drove over to the Haines Volunteer Fire Department and they told him although they could not sell the helmets if he would make a donation he could have one. He made a $20 donation and returned to the old fire house to pick out the helmet of his choice. We decided to get some lunch but the restaurant of choice, Mosey’s Cantina was closed until dinner time so we returned to the campground. At around 6:00 PM we picked up Bill and Pam and the four of us went to Mosey’s for another great dinner. After we came back we played Mexican Train dominos until about 10 PM and then turned in for the night.
