Prince Rupert, BC

Well, it's been a while since I've posted so will finish up showing the last stop of our Alaska trip.

When we arrived in the port at Prince Rupert, we saw bald eagles everywhere, perched on posts, in trees, on roofs. A local said just look for golf balls in trees and that's the eagles. They are huge and really beautiful.

Downtown area of Prince Rupert.
We are out and about in the pretty city of Prince Rupert. They say it has the best salmon fishing, better than Alaska, and closer.
We went on a boat tour and were taken further out in the harbor where the bald eagles gather for food. The guide would throw chunks of bacon fat into the water and the eagles would circle and then one would swoop down for a tasty snack. It was fun to watch.
