We moved on to Seward on Thursday (August 6). The scenery on the trip from Seldotna to Seward is beautiful. (See pictures below.) We were in Seward on the front part of our trip to Alaska, but it had rained most of the time when we were here last time. It was the only real rain we experienced on this trip so far. We wanted to see Seward without the rain because it is such a beautiful city on the shores of Resurrection Bay. We were lucky enough to get a spot for our RV as this place is filled with RVers this time because the silver salmon fishing season opened this weekend.
We weren't here 5 minutes and guess who showed up again!! It was great. We had two more days with Dorothy and Dave.
On Friday, the four of us went to visit the Alaska Sea Life Center in Seward, Alaska's only public aquarium. It is a learning center, enabling visitors to view an assortment of birds, fish, sea lions, sea urchins, and experience various interactive displays. We listened to yet another presentation on the devastation of the Valdez oil spill some twenty years ago by now, and were told that the oil is still hanging around some of Alaska's shores.
Jerry and I took our bikes out for a ride around the place yesterday, and, of course, we stopped for a mocha.
Last night, we all had a great salmon dinner with Dorothy and Dave. Afterwards, we said our "good byes" once again. Only this time we think it is for real. So, for those of you following Dorothy and Dave's trip, you will just have to wait for Dorothy's post cards to arrive.
We will leave here tomorrow and head north towards Fairbanks and Denali National Park.
Until next time, have a great week!
