Sailing on the Taku to Sitka

A travel blog entry by sggriffin


... was sure I needed them ), beautiful fabric and most friendly service. After a few purchases, we headed off for lunch at a local cafe, Coastal Cold Storage. In addition to lunch, they offer fresh seafood and fish, ready for freezing. Miss Pat bought a few souvenirs at the gift shop next door. It was time to leave - And I must say that this stop was originally planned to meet the needs of our dogs on the way to Sitka. But, being a fishing town, not visited by ...

A travel blog entry by avpadventure


... larger and fancier than we’ve seen.

Our stay here was 5 days and our last day was the only one that didn’t rain. Some of the other RV’s on the ferry seem to be making the same routes and we have spent some time at recreation areas with 2 other couples.
