Layover day. Boat behind us pulled out, and so we lined over to a dock side tie, which enabled the boat we were rafted with to pull out easily. We walked into town for breakfast. Diamond C served up a fine breakfast. From there we walked out to the petroglyph beach, about ¾ mile from town. Nice walkway and staircase down to the beach, and with the tide still out, it was easy to wander around and view the petroglyphs. There were a dozen or so which we could locate, quite weathered which is not surprising considering their exposed location and estimated age – 1000 years or so – no one knows for sure. We then visited the museum, a very new facility which was developed by the City of Wrangell. Very impressive. Lunch was at the seafood stand near the cruise ship dock, where we had shrimp etoufee. Excellent. From there it was to the library, where I e’mailed pages of log to Ken (two days wouldn’t go through for some reason.) I did a few boat maintenance chores in the afternoon, while Sandy worked on her digital pictures. For dinner we went back to the seafood stand to try their spot prawns which were the best we’ve ever eaten.
