Our Visit to Seward, Alaska
On Wednesday morning we left Logan's house in Eagle River to head for the Kenai Peninsula. Driving through Anchorage and along the Turnagain Arm of Cook Inlet, we then mounted Turnagain pass and down to Seward. The 150 mile trip took us about 3 hours. Logan was an excellent traveler only asking 'when we would get there' a time or two along the way. We stopped for gas at Gridwood and then again for a few minutes at the top of the pass. Roads were good, traffic was light and scenery was top notch. Seward is a coastal town on the east side of the kenai Peninsula. Tourism is a major industry here, with cruise ships, whale watching tours, charter fishing, the Sea Life Center and visits to the Exit Glacier. We arrived in Seward about 12:30 and went directly to the Sea Life Center. We ate a small lunch in the parking lot which Grandma had prepared for us and then embarked on our sea life adventure.
