This morning we stopped at Fred Meyers to use their rv dump & then hit the road. We didn't get far (10 miles!) before we stopped at another cute Alaskan cafe for lunch. Then Judi found a loop road thru nat'l wildlife refuge area that offered lakes & grizzly bear & moose. The Milepost said it was a good gravel road. We went 5 miles down the 19 mile road & turned around. We didn't see any lakes, grizzly or moose - all we saw was forest & we could only go 15-20 mph on the washboard gravel road. OK, so David won't take any suggestions from Judi in the future!

We had driven the Sterling Hwy down to Homer & took it back to the Seward Hwy today. We drove along the Kenai River & then past Kenai Lake. When we hit the Seward Hwy we turned right & headed for Seward. Some miles down the Seward Hwy we came to Kenai Lake - what? Turns out Kenai Lake is 24 miles long & runs between the Snow River in the east to the Kenai River in the west.

Approaching Seward, we saw a couple of big glaciers in the mtns. Then as we drove into Seward we saw another glacier above Seward & more in the mtns across the bay. We passed the road to the rv park where we'd made reservations & drove into Seward to check out a county park with hookups that someone told us about a few days ago. It looks interesting so we paid for 2 nites here & may move down into Seward in a couple of days.

We had sunshine this morning - partly to mostly cloudy thruout the day - & even just a few sprinkles. Think we're in Alaska.

More later...
