Amber Alaskan beer

 

The menu at Twisted Fish

 

Great tasting brew

 

Many bar choices

 

We like the landlubber menu

 

Margherita pizza – oh so good

 

Dinner salad

 

Twisted fries

 

A small strawberry shortcake?

 

Best seat in the house

 

A wine/cocktail bar

 

Information booth

 

World city mileage sign

 

Certainly not crowded today

 

Sail away

The tidal change must be big here

No sail away since we are leaving at 10pm

Still light near 10pm

Many flights out of here

 

Typical sea gull

 

Juvenile eagle

 

Mottled feathers

 

Possibly takes a year or two to feather out

 

Sea gull has no fear of this predator

 

Now the eagle chases the gull

 

Wonder who won?

 

Probably the eagle

 

Eventually, his head and tail feathers will be white

 

The body and wings will be brown

 

Land gear down

 

Still giving chase

 

Enjoying the game

 

No hunting

 

Still harrassed

But it got pretty close
