Ferry to Skagway
Friday, July 10, 2009 – We didn’t have to be out of the campground until 1:00 so we took advantage of the time to clean up the motorhome and get all the laundry done before we leave Alaska and head for British Columbia. We filled up with fuel and headed about 8 miles out of town to the ferry terminal where we checked in about 1:30 in the afternoon. The ferry wasn’t scheduled to leave until 8:30 PM but rather than fight the road construction back to town and then try to find a place to hang out we decided to wait in the motorhome. Bill and Pam came over and we made some snacks for lunch and played cards until it was time to board the ferry. By the time we boarded, made the short trip to Skagway, unloaded and drove to our campsite it was almost 11:00 PM. Since we hadn’t eaten all day Bill and I drove downtown to see if anything was open. All we found was a couple of bars so we stopped in at one of them that seemed to have a lot of people inside. The kitchen was closed so we ordered a drink and listened to the music for a little while. The band was really horrible and the first song they performed was a profanity laced song they screamed into the microphone. It didn’t take long to get our fill of them and we returned to camp and went to bed.
