I had verified the routine the following day . . . and it was pretty easy . . . everything was 'in the system’ . . . so a short wait and we were ready to board. They give you baggage tags so you can put your own bags on little dollies . . . that get rolled onto the ferry with a small tug (tractor) . . . then you retrieve them on the other end.
... they use cheap champagne). On to the Princess Theater for the “Motor City” show, with tunes from Motown and lots of singing and dancing, and finally, time for bed. The weather today was once again delightful. For the most part, we had blue skies and sunshine until the evening when it became overcast. Temps are a touch cool, but when dressed in layers, it feels fine to be outside. Tomorrow, Ketchikan.
