They are for the snow plow drivers to gauge where the edge of the road is. Red you're dead and White you're alright! Before heading back to the ship we stopped at Liarsville. There is a cute "melodrama" reenactment and we got to pan for gold. It's a set up, but yes we did find gold in our pans ( imported from Canada!)

... feeling rotten so I did not get up until around 10:00. We had coffee and pastries delivered to the room so that was breakfast. Ben awoke at 5:30 and got up to see the boat drop anchor at this port. He saw a couple whales and eagles as we were coming into port.
