We’ve Moved to Seward, Alaska

Our friends, Dennis & Carol, have been in Seward for the last 4 nights with a waterfront site.  They told us the campground was filling up for the upcoming 4th of July holiday and offered to save their spot for us.  We decided to take them up on their offer and headed out early this morning and were in Seward in time to say our goodbyes to them as well as to  Marilyn and Larry.  They were all driving to Anchorage today, and we’ll be staying on the Kenai Peninsula for close to 2 more weeks, so we won’t be meeting up with them again during our Alaska travels.  We have a wonderful view of Resurrection Bay from our front window and have seen a U.S. Coast Guard ship.


Kenai Fjords Tours is a glacier and wildlife tour company.  We went on one of their boats while we were in Seward two years ago.


There are several pilings out front and seagulls and other birds are often perched on top of them.  We’ve seen a seal as well as a sea otter out there also, but no photos yet.


There was a cruise ship in at the dock.


And here we are set up in our campsite for the next 8 nights.


This is something I remembered from out last trip here that is interesting to watch.  The cruise ships back out into the bay with the assistance of a tugboat, and when they get out to a certain depth, the ship pivots around and continues on out of the bay as shown in the next few photos.


That’s all for today.  We have no definite plans for tomorrow, but I’m sure we’ll come up with something.

Jan, did you take these photos with your new camera? If so, good job! Glad you got the waterfront site. We sure enjoyed ours for the few nights we were there. Sorry we won't be linking up with you and Ken again.
