Onto Seward

Of course the rain gods decided enough sunshine and our last few days at Williwaw Campground saw rain and more rain. Saturday was just about 24 hours worth. Sunday, even though still a little drizzly, we decided to take a drive to Hope. It is a very small old gold mining town. We didn't really stop to check it out but just enjoyed the drive along Sixmile Creek to Turnagain Arm. There was a lot of traffic on Seward Highway going the other way as weekenders left Seward and the rest of the Kenai Peninsula.







Monday we left our lovely spot at Williwaw and again drove on the Seward Highway passing the Hope turnoff and continuing on to the Port town of Seward. We got a waterfront site in one of the city campgrounds on Resurrection Bay. Sites are close together but who cares when you have such a awesome view out the front window. We couldn't get a electric hook up site but was only $15 instead of 30 and so that was fine. We had stopped at the free dump in town to clean out the tanks and get fresh water.







Not bad views, wouldn't you say. We are in walking distance from the town and the harbor. Their population is about 3,600 but it is a very popular tourist area as it is right on the Kenai Fjords National Park. The usual access to the Park is on excursion boats and we are going to take a tour this week. We had to go into town to a Safeway to stock up and couldn't resist taking a picture of this little Smart Car with a Big load on top. We weren't the only ones taking a picture.

I think we are going to like it here. Savannah approves the views as she sits on the dash looking out the window.
