When I got up this morning and looked out front, there were two bald eagles sitting on the pilings out front.
A little later, there was a sea otter busy diving and probably getting mussels off the pilings for it’s breakfast.
There has been a Navy ship in at the docks since we arrived, and today it headed out to sea.
We went to the Alaska Sealife Center to look around. Here are a few photos from our visit there.
Next we decided to drive up the hill out of town on the route the runners will be taking on the 4th of July. This photo was taken at the base of the mountain where they start the real climb, but at this point they have already been steadily climbing out of the downtown area.
From there, we headed back into town and getting down to the main road, we saw this moose and her calf. Here are a few photos and we took. Notice her back hoof that was very oddly shaped for whatever reason. We’ve never seen anything like that.
We continued our drive to the road on the east side of the bay. We had another wildlife sighting of a black bear at the side of the road. It was standing up before it headed back into the brush.
Also on the east side we got a closer look at the Seward Ship Drydock building.
This building gets it’s insulation from shipping containers on all sides.
Crab pots line the road during the off season.
There’s even a state prison out here.
Ken used his camera to zoom in on the trails running up Marathon Mountain.
And the cruise ship of the day heads out of Resurrection Bay. Our plans for tomorrow are to head across the street to dump the black and gray tanks and take on more fresh water. The traffic in Seward is already picking up and the standby city RV parking areas have already opened and are filling up. It’s interesting to watch as RV’s pull out, other people are ready to move in and grab an open space. Jennifer and the girls will be driving down for the race on the 4th and headed home later that day. Kimber and her family will be headed this way from Kenai tomorrow evening so we probably won’t see them until Saturday.
