Vistas of Valdez, Part 2

Now, not all of our days here have been clear with sunny skies.  In fact, the majority of our stay we experienced mostly cloudy skies with fog or low clouds with a few sunny breaks and cool temperatures (50's) with light drizzle.

Watching this "smallish" crab boat was interesting.  Some of the crew were new to the job

Strolls along this working boat harbor enlightened us with all sorts of visual details.  Here, I saw this boat crew liked collecting other treasures from the sea.

And we also caught a glimpse of a fishing boat being moved from hard storage to the that's how they do it.

There are multiple fish cleaning stations like this one on the Valdez harbor front.
