The bay was at its calmest early on Sunday morning.
What better thing to do than pack breakfast in the car, and drive out to the end of the road and see what nature has to say?
May comes as a gentle relief to this region that can be badly battered and beaten during the worst months of the winter.
This morning Seward put on its best beauty and brought peace to my soul.
As I walked the shore line I thought about what things might have been like here 100 years before. Harsh and brutal – but filled with so much hope of providing a life and a livelihood to families who had come from all over to make this part of Alaska their home.
My favorite photo EVER!
The sun shines down on this old boat, permanently in dry dock.
((okay, I have to admit it – a certain song was going through my head with lyrics of “A Three Hour Tour, a Three Hour Tour….”)) But look at the beautiful view!
It was indeed a good morning in Seward, AK!
Gentle waves lapping at a lonely cove.
I left my footprints on the shores of Resurrection Bay. And Seward left its footprints on my heart!
Can you beat this glory?
No, but you can add to it with this waterfall:
Still many other photos to come! After this restful morning, we boarded a boat for a Kenai Fjords tour –6 hours discovering the wonders of the Fjords!
Yesterday our 12 hour train ride was fabulous, bringing us from Anchorage all the way to Fairbanks.
Today we move on down to Delta Junction where I’ll be meeting with the Forget-me-knot Quilters for two days of workshops and a lecture. Looking forward to seeing them again!
Will post when I can as wifi and time is available!
Much love from the land of the midnight sun – which is no lie, sun set at 11:30pm here last night and was up again by 4am! Egad.
