Since we did not have to catch the ferry until the afternoon, we had a little time in the morning to do some more exploring of the Juneau area.  We returned briefly for one last look at Mendenhall Glacier hoping for blue sky, but that was not to be.  We then went in search of eagles.  Our first stop was Eagle Beach, but unlike its name no eagles were at the beach.  One did perch way behind in a tree. 
From there we stopped at Amalga or Eagle Harbor where we had been told eagles sometimes fish, but the only thing jumping there were the fish.  They were jumping all over the water, but the eagles didn't seem to want them.
Since the morning was passing quickly, we returned to the trailer to get some lunch and close down to head to the ferry. 
We were first on the ferry this time.  On our 4 ferry trips we were first on twice and last on twice.  The trip was smooth and peaceful as we traveled up the Lynn Canal.  We passed by several glaciers including the Mendenhall, Eagle, and Herbert.  We also passed by two lighthouses, Sentinel Light and Eldred Rock Lighthouse.
We arrived on time and quickly made our way to the campground.  Tomorrow we will start exploring the area.
