Beautiful Seward, Alaska

Happy Father's Day to all the fathers, step-fathers and father substitutes out there!

Well -- finally we had the pleasure of eating fresh salmon just caught the same day here in Alaska. Jerry and Dave went fishing at the mouth of a river where the salmon were traveling from the ocean into the river, going upstream to spawn. Dave hooked three salmon. And, we had a great salmon feast that night. Just had to tell the world about it!

See video below:

It rained real hard the last two days, and off and on all day today (Monday). The forecast is for three or more days of rain.
We are dry camping and expect to leave Seward on Tuesday. Hate to leave Seward because it really is a beautiful place -- easy to walk the town or the bike path, watch the sea otters floating by on their backs from our window, see the cruise ships come and go, watch the tide levels go up and down, and with binoculars, check out the number of people fishing across the bay (where Jerry and Dave went fishing).

Until next time -- enjoy your life. Jerry and Mary
