        ... about midnight. Note I have stopped 'birthing' every time we get to a port. I'm sure Delma will be happy about that! Funny the things one thinks of during the night!

        Along the way we saw a family of Dall sheep and had fun photographing them as the scampered on the steep and rugged cliffs of Church National Park.

        ... they hadn't managed to finish during the summer. Of course, they also hold the world record for selling duct tape to repair the aforementioned blue tarps!.
