Back in the USA

We returned the rental car and flew from Victoria to Vancouver where we went through customs and immigration (a little piece of the US in Canada)and caught our flight to Anchorage.  In Anchorage we picked up the rental car, hooked up the gps, and headed out of the city toward Seward.  Once we got there, we checked on tomorrow's boat trip, found we were on the list of those going, so we checked into our motel and went out to dinner at a waterfront restaurant.  I had halibut cheeks in a pasta that was very good.  Halibut is the king of fish here in Alaska (web photo).  I'm not sure they catch all that many big lunkers anymore, but those that are caught are still pretty good sized.  We saw a few birds we don't see in Virginia like Northwestern Crow and many Glaucous-winged Gulls and Black-legged Kittiwakes flying around the harbor.  Tomorrow the boat trip.
