So, I find myself quite sad today. Strange really. I have only been here a week but a big part of me doesn't want to leave. Perhaps it is because I was born and (mostly) raised in a place very similar and only a few hundred miles south. The smell of the sea air, the green ferns, the rain and the blue light of the hills all seem so natural to me. Even though I live close to the ocean, I really realize now how much I miss it. I have enjoyed my time in Ketchikan. Funny how one can be happy and enjoying oneself but yet feel sadness at the same time. I am looking forward to being home yet I am unwilling to leave. It reminds me that time keeps moving forward and there is nothing we can do about it.
P.S. This is the Hole in the Wall bar....one of the best bars I have ever been to.
