One of the most fun ways to do that is by seeing what the tourists see. So every year on tourist-for-day we go out and act the part. Go TFAD!
This year we added the Aleutian Ballad Bering Sea tour to our list of to-dones in Ketchikan. (and it did not disappoint!) We were swarmed by bald eagles, we saw king crab, giant shrimp, an octopus, pulled in rockfish...and more. All the tour guides had a lifetime of Bering Sea and other Alaskan fishing stories. Thankfully the kids' new cameras came just in time...they used them a lot!
