We did our first excursion today in Ketchikan, AK. We visited Saxman Native Village where the Tlingit clan made totem poles and demonstrated their cultural dances. The people were so friendly and even invited me to dance with them.
The town of Ketchikan was a bit touristy for us. We went into a few restaurants hoping to find some food that we could eat for lunch but there weren’t any vegan-friendly restaurants to be found. The highlight of the day occurred when we went back to the ship to eat lunch. Jackie asked one of the head chefs if they could make us a veggie pizza with no cheese – and he said “NO PROBLEM!” So, he fixed it himself and served us the entire pizza! That was so cool of him to do that for us. And as a bonus, he said that they were planning a vegan night on Wednesday in the Oceanview Cafe.
We’re done with Ketchikan and on our way to Juneau, AK. We’ll be doing some whale-watching tomorrow evening. Can’t wait!
