Whitehorse, Yukon to Haines, Ak

Catching up on the trip so far.  We left Whitehorse on Monday the 11th and drove down to Haines, Ak. (Map)  On the way down we captured the video of the bears dancing that I posted a couple of days ago.  We stayed at the Oceanside RV park.  The RV park is just a gravel lot right on the ocean, the site is nothing to look at but the views into the harbor were pretty amazing. (Video).  That's dinner from Monda night that you see on the grill above, Steak, Asparagus, Potato packages and beans.  Yummy!!  On Tuesday night the camp owners put on a crab feed.  Large, fresh Alaskan crabs for $6!  Each camper was asked to bring a side dish.  It was pretty amazing.  Tuesday we headed out but made a stop at the Haines Golf Course (Website).    The owners are a retired Dr. and his wife who were really great people.  The Dr, Stan, took us on a tour of the golf course (Video) and then took me through a series of stretches to help me get the pain out of my hip and back.  He actually had me laying on the ground for a couple of them.  A couple of Bald Eagles were circling over head, Stan casually mentioned that they were probably checking to see if I was dead.  Pretty funny!  We plan to route back through here on our way back for some more carb and a round of golf.

Is that an air wick on your hip? Things getting stinky out there in the wilderness? Hee.

Love the view. Fab, just Fab!
