Alaska 2013, Day 37, Seward Day 1
Monday July 8, 2013
The campground runs a water taxi, kayak rentals, kayak tours and fishing trips. The silvers are in the bay a couple weeks early and the boats out of Miller's Landing are catching lots of salmon. They offer a 4hr salmon trip off a 26 walk around at 6 to 10AM so I booked a trip for this morning. I got 4 nice salmon and the other 2 people with me got 5 more and lost 3 or 4.
After lunch we went down to the Alaska Sea Life Center for the day. We were there all day, really a nice place. The touch tank had tons of sea stars and huge anenomes. We got to see the sea lion feeding and they are trying to train him some tricks for enrichment, he is huge. They got him to sit up on a rock and dive in. Really a popular place today.
On the way home I stopped in to Seward Brewing for a growler of beer. I got them to trade a Breckenridge Brewing growler bottle even up for a Seward Brewing growler bottle.
We cooked up some fresh silver salmon on the grill. Too cool to sit outside tonight but we had fresh salmon and beer!
When I went fishing the captain said they were going to grade the gravel road soon. When we headed out this morning we all joked about the craters of the moon drive only to find they had already graded it by lunch time!
