We finally got up early enough to take the town tour. Many restored buildings are only opened as a part of the tour.
|Our Guide Marie in the Bank of North America.|
|In a restored saloon|
|Bill and I belly up to the bar.|
|Some of these buildings were built right on the permafrost and really lean. Some have been reinforced just enough to keep them from falling over.|
|Marie in the old post office. She started out in town as a dancer at Diamond Tooth Gerties.|
|Bill at the Keno, a big freighter sternwheeler. Much bigger than the paddlewheeler, Klondike Spirit|
Today we went to the huge town museum. The courthouse is upstairs. It is actually used once a month or so.
|Hear ye, hear ye, all rise for Judge Bill|
After skipping lunch so we could enjoy a full meal at the Drunken Goat we caught the early, 8:30, show at Diamond Tooth Gerties Gambling Hall. Fun place that is a benefit for the Visitors Bureau. All money taken in here is spent on town projects. We sat down front in places that guaranteed that Bill was a choice of the dancing girls.
|Diamond Tooth Gertie can really belt out the old show tunes.|
|Up on stage, supposedly getting dancing lessons.|
|Bill had fun dancing.|
|Gertie, Bill and the girls. Bill is wearing the garter he won as a headband.|
Tomorrow we say goodbye to Dawson City and move on to Takheni Hot Springs.
