Seward, AK

Next, we were off to Seward which is situated on the other side of the Kenai  peninsula at the end of Resurrection Bay.  We heard that cruise ships stop here so there must be something!?!

We arrived in town with no campground reservations (as usual)  but found the city beach campground and pulled right up to a waterfront spot.  These had no hookups but our tank was full and we had great waterfront views of the bay with birds and FISH jumping right outside our windshield making it an ideal spot.

The weather was still rainy but Ken and Andrew still got in some salmon fishing .  When the sun finally poked out, we all went to the Alaska Sealife Center right next door.  This facility was  founded by a grant from the Exxon Valdez accident settlement and is the only facility in Alaska dedicated to rehabilitation of marine animals.  One exhibit focused on a Seal named “Woody” who kept swimming past the underwater viewing window.  At first, we thought it was a plane passing by as the huge 2,000+lb seal glided by.  As a comparison, Andrew, Nikki, Poohnut and Ken all got on a scale and collectively weighed in at 499lbs!!!  This guy was huge (Woody, not Ken).

Now it’s back to Anchorage to pick up Mommy from the airport!!!!
