We were hungry when we got there...
Yummy caribou stew at the Chattermark restaurant in Seward
Greek salad with grilled salmon
We explored the town a bit after dinner and headed
down the road to find the "backpacker's" cabin I reserved...
Found it! Once we figured out where we needed to
be, we went to the main office, checked in, and got our room key
What does a backpacker's cabin look like...?
'bout like this :) Nothing fancy; just a place to sleep-but
that's all we needed (a place to crash so we would be there and ready
to go in the morning). We called the fishing guide, made up a plan for the
next day, and headed out for a walk around the camping area/beach
Looking out at Resurrection Bay
It was a beautiful evening. We finished our walk and
headed toward the campsite's community bathroom to
wash up, brush our teeth, and get ready for bed
Yep- this sign was in the bathroom! Not uncommon in AK...
Bears are great, but I am glad we didn't find this guy outside our door ;)
We got up the next morning, went into town for breakfast,
met our guide and his wife, and set out to catch some fish...
One of the stunning views of the ocean from the road
We ended up on a beach across the bay, had
a quick tutorial from our guide, and started fishing!
No, this is not leftovers- it's a jellyfish :)
The birthday boy, our guide, and his wife- great pic!
As you can tell, we caught some fish. It wasn't the best time
to fish for reds (earlier in June would have been optimal), but
I am happy that Vince got to catch some! Our guide hooked us up
and told us about a restaurant back in Seward that would cook one
of the fish for our supper. It was a great way to end our little adventure!
