A Rainy Day in Seward Alaska, Tuesday, June 29, 2010

We left Cooper Landing this morning early because we wanted to get to Seward (50 miles away) in time to get a campsite in the city park, which is right on the bay. We figured if we got there early we might snag a good spot on the water. Well we arrived around 10:0o a.m. and there was one spot left, not directly on the water but one aisle over, so we took it.

After we registered, we drove down to the harbor and looked around. We had lunch in a nice little restaurant called “Ray’s”, which was suggested by the lady in the Visitor Center. The weather is so cold and windy it is not comfortable being in it for long. After lunch we walked around a little. Seward is not an RV friendly city. We had trouble finding parking anywhere. Even the restaurant had a sign out front saying “NO RV’s”. We finally found a parking lot on the edge of town where we could park. At any rate, it’s a difficult little town to maneuver around in. We found the post office and mailed a package, we found the library and I uploaded yesterday’s blog entry, and we drove back to the campsite.

We tried to take a walk along the bay but the wind and dampness drove us back inside the RV. So we will spend the rest of the afternoon reading and dozing. It’s a good day for it.

We will leave in the morning and drive farther south toward Homer, the last town on the Kenai Peninsula. We plan on ending tomorrow in the little town of Soldotna. Stay tuned. Bonnie

    Those fish tacos look awesome! That’s what I’m making for dinner tonight. I’m using Mahi Mahi with brown rice and a thai peanut sauce. I really wish I could recreate the fish tacos at Big River Grille. I’d be eating them all of the time! Maybe I need to start experimenting with avocado remoulade recipes…..
