July 3

Talk about strange!!  We think our hotel room (429) at the Guesthouse Inn in Anchorage must have been haunted.  A little after 8 pm when we returned to our room from dinner, we got a knock on our door and it was one of the hotel staff.  She wanted to know if we were alright as they were getting calls from our room phone but no one was on the phone.  She came in and checked our room phones and said that was strange there was not even a dial tone so the phone must not be working.  We all had a laugh and she left.......  The story continues ..... we got a knock on our door at 4:30 am and it was the Police!! They wanted to know if there was any problem because they were getting 911 calls from our room and no one was on the line..... Go figure! ...... Conclusion:  If you stay at the Guesthouse Inn in Anchorage, do not stay in room 427 as the smoke detectors go off randomly and do not stay in room 429 as it is haunted!!!

Today was a travel day.  We left Anchorage on a morning flight and arrived in Juneau at about 9:30 am.  We got our luggage and took a short walk off the airport grounds to a local diner.  We returned to the airport and caught a cab to the ferry terminal.
Strange that their sign does not say Juneau but I guess "everyone" knows that Auke Bay is in Juneau. We had about a 2.5 hour ferry ride to Skagway.  The ferry was a catamaran style hull.  It was averaging about 33 knots.  We saw at least 2 dozen dolphins feeding right at the surface.  We also saw a whale breach about 7 times while he was still in our sight as we passed by.  The breaches were the real deal with about 2/3rd of its body out of the water.  Very cool!!!

We made it to Skagway about 5 pm.  What a great quaint small town.  We walked about a half mile from the ferry dock to our hotel.  We walked to dinner and if we can

stay awake, their 4th fireworks will be at 11 pm tonight.
