August 12, 2012:

Day 3 of the 3-day 
Golden North Salmon Derby
in Juneau, Alaska...

Backing out of the slip
at Tee Harbor...

On step,
heading for the derby grounds...

No luck catching an elusive fish today,
although we had wildlife viewing opportunities ~
here is the first whale we encountered...



We later were lucky to view this mother whale
and her young one ~
schools of herring were everywhere...














Mergansers (seaducks) are often known as "sawbills"
because of their serrated bills to grip slippery prey,
such as the young herring they are feeding on
along this shoreline of Tee Harbor
when we were docking our boat...


This 2012 derby has come to an end,
and we now are looking forward to participating
again next year...
