Our RV @ Resurrection Bay

Today has been a day of transition. Last night at the Grand View RV park was nice and we enjoyed being able to catch up on the world - Fox News. Drudge, computer blogs, work email. Etc.

We had the “camper’s special” at the Grand View café for breakfast and then moved down the Glenn highway to the Matanuska Glacier state park. The Matanuska Glacier is an interesting glacier and the park had some nice informative signs - and no message of global warming.

We discussed stopping at the Alaska State Fair in Palmer, but decided not to stop.

We moved on to Anchorage for a little restocking for groceries and lunch at Mickey D’s and a stop at Great Alaskan Holidays to top off the water tank.

Our drive down the Seward Highway was nice but uneventful - no eagles, no wildlife and weather that is cloudy, misty and foggy.

We arrived in Seward and checked out a couple of RV parks and then settled in at Resurrection RV park, which is a city of Seward park and is on the shore of Resurrection Bay. We walked down to the small boat harbor and checked out some of the tours that are available. We ran into a couple that we had seen at Denali at Wonder Lake campground several days ago - small world.

As we were eating our dinner, we watched a couple of cruise ships depart and a couple of arrivals in our RV area. We talked with a couple from Minnesota who are sleeping in a Ford Freestyle and watched a family with a big toy hauler camper and Suburban maneuver into their space. After unloading, three little folding chairs, two bicycles, a tricycle, and a big wheel, the family has settled in.

The fog is moving in and the forecast is for rain tonight and tomorrow. If the weather stays this way, we will probably go to Exit Glacier tomorrow and then visit the Sea Life Center in the afternoon and hopefully the weather will be better for a cruise of the Kenai Fjords National Park on Sunday.
