Goodbye Ketchikan

Today was occupied with catching up on the laundry, and then sailing for Wrangell.

The winds and seas were calm, and about half of the 8 hour sailing was sunny.  People lazed about in the sun, occasionally adjusting the direction of their lounge chairs as the ship changed course relative to the sun.

But as a photographer, it was the other half of the cruise that gets me all excited:  the partly cloudy skies that provide more visually interesting and dynamic lighting on the landscape.
