I am not in the mood to write about cancer, I'm still thinking about vacation. Watch for Allison to guest blog about our trip to NIH in Bethesda. One of our excursions was sea kayaking at Ketchakan. Ketchakan has 300 plus rainy days a year. but the day of our excursion was sunny, clear and 75 degrees. We had a wonderful time in the nice weather and the smooth water in the coves. I didn't get a picture, but the water was clear and we could see hundreds of starfish clinging to the rocks. I didn't even know Alaska had star fish.
We also saw a bald eagle nest and parent and a harbor seal. After the kayaking, they gave us a delicious salmon snack. I counted it as a successful day as Marty didn't dump me out of the Kayak.
