Petersburg- At the wharf we watch the container unloaded from the barges. Even boats are piled on the top. It’s the only way to transport goods here.
The town is on a small level bend in the Narrows.
Its a clean, neat place with lots of flowers and some of the houses painted with colors. Drove to the Beach Park and walked the beach.
The Salmon Fishing derby is going on and lots of boats are in the harbor and on the water.
There are totems and petroglyphs.
I’m not sure why the place seems so different. The houses are mostly small, well-kept and nice. The town has a very neat center with the post office, library, town hall within walking distance. Its 50 plus and the sun is shining.
The weighing station for the 33rd Annual Petersburg Salmon Derby is at the Harbor Master’s dock. In a cooler is the 44.7 pound leader. It’s enormous, but there might be one bigger by the end of the day.
I’m watching the fishermen launch small boats. The marina has more masts than the forest has trees.
We drove the eight blocks to the edge of the town. The fields are covered with stunted trees, not sure why.
Looking for a restaurant to try a local food, but nothing is open. It’s Sunday.
I finally realise why Petersburg is different. The town has no
section devoted to cruise ships. It is a working fishing village.
