We met a lot of people along the way, most of whom took the tram as part of their visit to Juneau on the cruise ships.
Every once in a while, I would see a local face, and the person would do a double take, just like I did!

I took a picture of Douglas from the Cross.

We made it to the Cross, along with a lot of other folks. It was kind of like the United Nations. I heard French, Portuguese and German, in addition to English.
When we came back down from the cross, we went and sat in the sunshine on the deck of the tram restaurant and had a Diet Coke and chatted with a nice couple from Yorkshire, England - a retired judge and nurse. We had an interesting discussion. Meeting interesting new people is one of the benefits of living in a tourist town!
We took the tram back down the mountain and I headed home for a nap!
Later in the day, I had scheduled a pedicure. It was so nice to have a soothing foot rub after a long walk, and I even got my toenails painted.

All in all it was a great day!
