Back in Alaska

I arrived back in Anchorage late last night and after breakfast and a trip to REI drove down to Seward on the Kenai peninsula, named after William Seward who was responsible for the purchase of Alaska in 1867.

I’m staying in one of the campgrounds along the front all of which seem well maintained, pretty clean and have WiFi access! As with many city campgrounds there is an eclectic mixture of folk here! That is when compared with the more wilderness oriented campgrounds I have been to so far.

The picture is my view – the water is about 30ft away from me. For the first time during my trip I unfolded my bike and rode round the town before having dinner. Tomorrow I plan to visit the Sea Life Center which was mostly funded by money from the damages paid as a result of the Exxon Valdez oil spill and was recommended to me by a marine biologist I met on the shuttle bus in Denali. After that, I’ll stop at the Exit Glacier before making the drive down to Homer.
