Today was our day in Ketchikan - also a nice little Alaskan community built into the rocks I think by the looks of the stairs to get to some of the homes. The view from the ship was pretty nice but a close up was much nicer. We walked around town visiting some of the historical sites but after a couple of hours, even jewelry stores could not tempt me to stay longer because my foot (yes the same one that I have been dealing with for 7 months) was hurting so badly that the thought of walking another few feet was enough to make me stop in my tracks.
As an aside, I am trying castor oil therapy on the cruise. The heat and oil seems to be soothing my foot but there is definitely something amiss. I would love to be able to walk freely without pain, but I'm despairing that I am not going to find a solution for my problem. Okay enough of that. Now let's get some pictures of Kethcikan!
