First leg of the Alaska Marine Highway

We took our first trip on the Alaska ferry system, from Haines to Juneau. The total time on the water was about 4 1/2 hours, and we had good weather with a little rain all the way. Saw a pod of whales and some porpoise off in the distance, as well as a few pelagic birds (Sooty Shearwater and Black-legged Kittiwake) but mostly enjoyed the view of the passing scenery. We sat outside in the solarium for a while, and then moved inside when it started to rain and played some cribbage.
