Day 3 (May 19, 1999) - Departure from Ketchikan

On return to the ship, it was sadly time to go. Most cruise ships only spend a half day or so in Ketchikan. While it's not very big, it's a pleasant place to explore. I would have loved to have more time to look around.

As we were leaving, the rain that had been coming down hard all day gradually began to lessen, and briefly turned into light snow flurries. Before long, though, we were enshrouded in fog, which put an end to the day's photography.
