Seward Bound

Posted by on Jul 10, 2013 in Alaska 2013 | Comments Off on Seward Bound

We departed Trapper’s Creek this morning and drove past Anchorage along Turnagain Arm to the coastal town of Seward. We’ve checked into Creekside Cabins, owned by Tim, who is a pilot for Kalitta Air when he is not being an innkeeper. Tim has a beautiful set of cabins along a creek just outside of town. We visit for awhile, discussing the possibility of swapping some flight instruction for lodging and/or a salmon fishing trip. Tim’s girlfriend goes to UT so we may be able to work out a float rating as well. He has done a great job with his group of cabins and we are relaxing with a campfire by the creek. The creek murmurs along, the fire snaps and pops, the ducks are calling nearby and we are totally relaxed as the sun makes its way toward the horizon.

Earlier, we walked along the waterfront, visited with a fellow from Maine who had been fishing, nosed around the shops and stopped in for a couple of local beers.

Judy fixed a wonderful supper of pork, salad, potatoes and more. The weather is cool and clear this evening, finally giving us a break from the rain.

Tomorrow, we are scheduled for a sea kayaking trip into Resurrection Bay.
