Remnants of the past

Ghosts from the past

 


It was not as quite as bad this morning, but still windy. We went for a drive around the area to see downtown and to drive further out along the bay to see what was there.

There was another small community of Millers Landing on Lowell Point. Some small homes, some B&B’s, some rental cabins and a small hotel. Lots of boating enterprises for fishing and sight-seeing.

There were plenty of interpretive signs along the waterfront to read about the history and geology of the area. The 1964 Alaska earthquake did a lot of damage to train trestles, shipping docks and businesses along Resurrection Bay. There was evidence of the pilings and foundations all along the shoreline, like skeletons standing to remind us of the busy industry that was once there.
