Alaskan Adventure: Day 6 & 7

Day 6 brought us to Ketchikan, a fishing village of 8,000 people. It's totally picturesque. We walked 3 miles out of town to the Saxman Totem village, where we browsed one of the largest collections of totem polls around. By 1pm, we were back on the boat and on our way of out of town.

Most of day 7 was spent at sea. However, we did pull in to Victoria, British Columbia for a few hours in the evening. We hopped a bus to the Butchart Gardens, where we were amazed at the beauty of the place.

Butchart Gardens started its life as an open pit mine, and was converted to a gardens over 100 years ago as a way of reclaiming the area. It's truly an example of amazing foresight.

By 10pm, we were back on the boat for our last night at sea.
