June 6, 2012: Playing tourist guide for our 'great-niece' in Juneau, Alaska...

June 6, 2012:

Our sweet niece came to visit, so my husband and I gave her
a quick tour of Juneau, Alaska yesterday evening ~ What fun!!

Twin-engine floatplane ready to take off
in front of Merchant's Wharf...


Newly renovated Marine Park...
Native Art Mural painted
on the facade of the Municipal Building...
Sealaska Corporation....
Newly constructed Downtown Transportation Center
and Parking Garage at the corner of Egan/Main...
Boat lightering tourists ashore from an anchored
Cruise Ship in Gastineau Channel...
Merchant's Wharf Building
along the waterfront...
Cruise ship Statendam in port...
Marine View Building...
Paradise Cafe...
Tourists loaded onto the bus...
Marine Park Parking Garage
with a Library on the top floor...
 
Taku Harley-Davidson Shop...
My niece fell in love 
with the iconic Patsy Ann...
Patsy Ann was dubbed the
"Official Greeter of Juneau, Alaska"
in 1934 by the Mayor...

Red Dog Mercantile...
A Downtown Juneau apartment building...
Infamous 
Red Dog Saloon...
Alaskan Brewing Company
(their downtown outlet store)...
Front and back are made out of Alaskan Brewing Company
beer bottle caps,
which is sleeveless and worn by slipping it over the head
(display only, not for sale)...

Walking along Franklin Street
on a mission for sweet treats...
My niece had to purchase chocolate covered gummy bears
and we couldn't pass up a brick

 of the very tasty 'Mendenhall Mudd'...
Another iconic bar called the Lucky Lady in the foreground,
with the Marine View Building in the background...
A view up 
Franklin Street...
Our niece wanted to see 'in-person' 
our commercial fishing boat  the F/V Chelsey,
as she had only viewed it in photographs...
Scenic Harris Boat Harbor...


She had never visited the
Local 262 Plumbers and Pipefitters Union Hall where my husband
is the Business Manager for Southeast Alaska either...
Ground floor houses the union offices, a conference room, and two bays -
the second story contains the training center, a 2-bdrm. apartment,
and a bunkhouse for traveling apprentices/journeymen...
The much-used shop while training apprentices, which has three bays, 
and also houses several individual welding stations...
Our niece's tour is over, although she'll be back
another day when we'll continue showing her the
sights of Juneau, Alaska...
