Soldotna, Alaska

Greetings!


While we were still at Captain Cook State Park, Dorothy and Dave unexpectedly happened to drive by on Sunday afternoon. They then took the space next to ours for the night. Dave brought over some freshly caught salmon and Jerry cooked it on the grill outside. We are eating a lot of salmon!!! And we love it!

Later that evening, we took a walk to the cliff and took some more pictures of the beautiful sunset. Again, it was 11:20 p.m. when we took these pictures.

The next day Dorothy and I walked around the park before Dave and Dorothy took off.

Today (Tuesday), Jerry and I left our peaceful hide-away and moved into the small city of Soldotna, where we will stay for the 4th of July weekend. The RV park is located right on the Kenai River (see picture below) and is within walking and biking distance of downtown. Dave and Dorothy are due to join us on July 3rd.

We have really lucked out with the sunny weather on this trip. All the locals that we talk to tell us that this weather is uncommonly sunny for this time of the year. Normally, Alaska experiences a lot of rain. But, we encountered rain only in Seward thus far. Hope it stays that way for the 4th of July.

Until next time, stay safe.

Jerry and Mary

Hi Guys, looks like another beautiful spot. When you've been at locations along the ocean have you looked for any beach glass along the shorelines? Hope you have a great 4th.

Hi Pat,
No beach glass that we have seen. RV Park is small and while it doesn't have the serenity of the Captain Cook State Park -- the trade off is that we have full hook up here -- and easy access to Starbucks, DQ, and Subway!
Have a nice 4th yourself.
