On Saturday, we had a restful day at sea and then had to be up early on Sunday when we arrived in Seward to catch the train to Anchorage.

We were up early on Thursday 18th August as we were headed to the Yukon on a bus and then on a train back to Skagway. It was a bit drizzly today which made the scenery a bit misty. Can't imagine how the people searching for gold here in the 1800s managed it all. It is such difficult terrain. We went a long way into Canada and visited a place called Carcross. We had lunch there and there was an interesting museum and also some live animals to visit. They also had dog mushing rides which were fun to watch.

We were so fortunate with the weather in both Ketchikan and Juneau. In Ketchikan we had a wander around and then went on a floatplane exursion which was amazing. It was a tiny plane!!!
In Juneau, on Wednesday, we went to the Mendenhall Glacier. We walked over to the waterfall which was beautiful.

I have finally found time to post about the last few weeks beginning with our few days in Vancouver. After a very long day of travel (bus to Sydney, flight to San Francisco, flight to Vancouver and quite a few hours of waiting around) we ended up in Vancouver. We were staying in North Vancouver so we added a ferry ride and a very long walk up a long hill to the end of the day! It was such a relief to arrive at our airbnb. It was a 100 year old house which was lovely. On Friday we headed into town to do a walking tour of the city centre.
