When I drove off the ferry, I went directly to my sublet. Sarah is not a morning person and did not offer to meet me at 4:30 a.m. Can't imagine why!! The sublet is on Douglas Island about seven miles from Juneau. I didn't meet Jai, my new roommate, until Tuesday night. She seems very nice and I think we'll get along great. The house is a very old "Juneau style" house but the inside is very nice. The bedrooms are on the first floor with the living area upstairs. The view is gorgeous!!! (picture on right)
After I got the car mostly unpacked, Sarah and her friend, Rosie, took me out for breakfast. No pictures - I forgot to take my camera but it was good!!!! I spent the rest of the day unpacking, etc and met Sarah and Rosie for dinner at The Crab Shack. I am going back soon for King Crab legs. I walked around downtown on Tuesday and dodged tourists. There must have been four or five cruise ships in port so lots of people wandering around. I am truly amazed at all the stores selling fine jewelry and several people have told me they are owned by the cruise companies.
Sarah came over Tuesday night and we went to the bar/restaurant about half a block from me for some great pizza.
Wednesday I took a hike (about 5 miles) out in the Valley and looked around out that direction. The weather has been great!!! Sunshine every day since I have been here - along with some rain. Juneau is in a rain forest so it rains a lot here. It is also daylight when I go to bed and daylight when I get up:) I haven't "been in the dark" since I arrived!
