Pics from Sitka, Alaska
It seems most of Alaska is small islands crammed together.
These are on the way to Sitka.
The ship could not dock at Sitka, so they use the lifeboats to tender everyone to town. Note the houses on the little islands.
There are bald eagles everywhere.
The Russian Orthadox Church.
DH and MIL at the Tlingit cultural center.
The Russian Dancers.
The Glide dance. The dancers take tiny little steps so they seem to glide across the floor.
All the dancers are volunteers who do this on their days off or lunch hours. There are no men in the group so the women take turns doing the men's parts. They perform on a stage in the conference center. There is no back stage and they must go out one side, run around the building while changing clothes to enter on the other side.
When they open the back curtain this is the view. You can see our ship anchored in the bay.
Tonight our waiters danced.
Our second towel animal was an elephant.
Next stop will be Juneau.
