We all had salmon for lunch- Mom and Dad had the chowder, and I had a salmon melt. The food was really good.
It was only a short drive to Prince Rupert and we got to our hotel by 2pm or so. The hotel is under renovation but it didn't bother us. Our room is really nice and it faces the ocean so we can watch the boats. There were even binoculars to use.
We stopped at a Museum that had lots of artifacts about the native people and early settlers of the town. My parents like this sort of thing a lot. Then we explored the part of town called "Cow Bay". It's called that because someone once had a herd of cows that grazed in the area. There is a large dock and we watched from above while a fisherman cleaned and cut up a huge fish. It might have been a halibut. I never saw a fish so big! We also saw a bald eagle perched above the pier.
The weather was not exactly raining, but doing more than drizzling, and kind of cold. Mom says we are probably in for a lot of this weather for the rest of the trip.
Once we got back to our hotel, we turned on the Olympics to watch the opening ceremony. I thought it was really cool, and liked the part when they were showing the Industrial Revolution the best. Mom and I stayed up to watch all the athletes come in, but then we turned it off. We had to get up really early the next morning to catch the ferry, so we had to get to sleep. It was kind of hard to go to bed early, because Prince Rupert stays light a lot later than home-it was still light out at 11pm!
