First though I have a few blog-keeping notes:
1) While I definitely took a photo a day on our trip, I am going to skip my Daily Photo 2019 posts for this vacation and I will not be posting my current ones until after I'm done blogging about this trip.
2) While I had planned on blogging about every week of summer, again, those posts would be redundant with our vacation posts so I'm skipping weeks 4, 5, and 6 of summer.
With all that in mind, on to Haines, Alaska. If you need to catch up, you can read my previous post here. Our original plan was to spend only one night in Haines, but we were able to book another night and set out to explore.
The first night we ate supper and my friend, A, and I tried to find out if we could book other transportation to Juneau. We found a boat which would take us there but we'd have to stay overnight, and since we had just cancelled our accommodations, that didn't feel like a viable option. We gave up on getting to Juneau and decided to just enjoy being in Haines.
here for when we visited that) but I think I liked The Hammer Museum more.
The reason the ferry workers picked this particular time to go on strike was because Haines was hosting the Southeast Alaska State Fair which was one of the biggest events of the year. Due to the strike, the fair was pretty empty, but we enjoyed checking it out.
That evening we took some more pictures of the Haines Harbour after supper. We kept joking about getting the "1,000 piece puzzle shot" and I think this might have been the winner. Wouldn't this be an AWESOME puzzle?!?!?
