P&P Without Colin Firth?

My convo with Ralph
(Background: I don’t like anything zombie related, not at all. Yuck.)

R: I just got a Red Box code for a free movie

J: great. Anything interesting?

R looking at the list. They have P&P and Zombies. I can get that.

J: zombies? You know I don’t like that.

R: well, it is P&P.

J: pondering, leaning towards getting it. WAIT. Is it free or do you have to pay 25 cents?

R: pay 25 cents.

J: nope. Not worth it.

Then we both had a hardy laugh at the ridiculous-ness of me not wanting to spend a quarter. Now, if they made it with cute puppies or kittie cats…

Agreed that this is “duh”, but the deepness of ice in the ice fascinated me.

View From Hotel Bar

Popular bar with the boat captains. We liked the people watching and the view.

Solomon Gulch Fish Hatchery

Going to the fish hatchery was a really mind blowing experience, that I can’t convey in writing, nor in the photos.

I had read that this is a great place to try to see bears eating fish. We didn’t see any.

As we pulled up, I noticed the water churling over all the rocks. As I got closer, I realized that those aren’t rocks, but fish. Yes, thousands and thousands of salmon can be seen trying to swim up the ladder to get “home”.

There were also lots of seagulls eating all the dead fish. It was quite the scene.

We went several times and the scene was awful at low tide…with all the dead fish.

If someone had told me that there were 100,000 fish right here, I’d think… of course I have NO idea what 100,000 fish look like, but yeah, I’d believe that. Later, I found out the count is probably 50,000 – 60,000.

Seagulls eating the dead fish. This is where we saw a black bear.

Like Fishing in a Barrell

The 2 fishermen in the photo had snag hooks. They would cast the line out, and take a few seconds to pull it back in….with a fish. Every time, there was a salmon caught. THAT is how many fish were in the water.

Gold Rush Days Continue…in the Rain

And of course it rained the hardest on the Big Day (Gold Rush Days). But they still had festivities…ever listen to music, or watch a parade in the pouring rain and 58′?
