Perhaps I should have started with this photo, as this is where we were prior to boarding the train. Well, now we're back here deciding which direction to head out in the rain. Our stomachs are letting us know it's time for lunch.
As you peruse these photos, notice how almost every shop at ground level is a jewelry store. We are told there are over 30 jewelry stores in Skagway. This is impressive since Skagway has a population of approximately 862! We learn later today the cruise ship lines own all but 1 jewelry store.
I was hoping the day would get better as it got longer, but this is not to be. Notice how all the photos in the slick travels brochures are taken in the sun? We get to enjoy the liquid variety.
Our quest for lunch ends here. No, I didn't pack on 20 extra pounds during lunch, I am, however, doing the Alaska "thing", i.e. layering my clothes. I'm wearing at least 5 layers to keep warm. It isn't very cold, but the weather changes so rapidly it's all about being prepared
With lunch over, and after a long boat ride, and a longer train ride, we need to walk. Let's go over to the Jewell Gardens.
