July 10 to 12, 2022
There was no room at the campgrounds in Hope, so we dismissed ourselves from school and headed for Seward and its KOA. Cheryl and Doug made a fine spaghetti dinner.
Seward, on the Kenai Peninsula southwest of Prince William Sound, is another busy port on Resurrection Bay.
We hiked to the overlook of Exit Glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park. Along the way were signs of where the leading edge was located in various years. Dee and Cheryl were there and saw it in 2005.
The Alaska Sea Life Center is a very sophisticated aquarium and center to rescue sea creatures. My favorite part was watching the puffins diving and swimming underwater – they are quick and sleek! The Seafood Grill nearby had excellent chowda.
On Tuesday, July 12 we moved from the KOA to the Seward Municipal Campground at the waterfront on Resurrection Bay, a fjord. It was named in 1792 by a Russian Fur Trader and explorer who arrived there during a storm on the Russian Sunday of the Resurrection (Easter).
It was great fun to be on the waterfront watching the tides, the people, and the boats. The flowers right on the beach are very colorful. We had seafood chowda and reindeer stew at the Seasalt Alaskan Bar and Grill.
