Downtown - Part 1
by Gigi Pilcher
The colorful signs of many shops on Creek Street caught the eye of visiting shoppers. A few folks sat in the shade enjoying the catch of the day at the Halibut Hole.
The boardwalk along the inside of Creek Street was crowded with folks weaving back and forth between the shops inspecting the wares.
Diane Willard of Alaska Eagle Arts, a Native American Arts Gallery, fielded questions from shoppers who were admiring the colorful Pendleton blankets designed by artist Marvin Oliver as well as Alaska Native art on display.
Further down Creek Street, Haida carver and artist George Brown, proprietor of Hide- Away Gifts, stopped to smile for the camera. Continuing along the wooden boardwalk out to Stedman Street the salmon continued their journey up the creek.
Stedman Street was bustling with interesting sights, among them was Blue Heron's Craig Green enjoying a late afternoon snack.
Further along, crossing guards relaxed on their break while their co-workers stopped traffic.
