Juneau day one

We arrived in Juneau on a rare clear and sunny day. This did not last long but it was great to see the city for the first time under a blazing sunny sky and blue skies. 

We checked into our hotel after a quick hour and half flight and headed to silverbow bagels for brunch and caffeine pick me up. 

We walked around the water front and gawked at the tourist gawking at Alaska. I thought we had lots of tourist in anchorage but Juneau had 4 cruise ships at the harbor at the same time. Different languages surrounded us everywhere we went. 

Taku is the local salmon processor. After tasting samples we decided it didn't hold up to our favorite salmon copper river reds! Two weeks until hubby goes dip netting on the copper!

Ocoee and I rode the Roberts tram to the top and enjoyed the views. To be honest the views were nice but at $31 a pop it was more of tourist trap than anything. There was still too much snow to use the trails so not much to do up top. 

Across the street from our hotel we headed to the hanger for dinner. They were too full so we went two doors down to the silver gulch and ate a yummy crab boil and fish and chips while watching the sea planes land. 

A few Alaskan porters and deck space to climb around and we were all happy campers!

Good first day! Tomorrow we will swim and see more sightS.
