Seward trip

April 23rd, 2007 by sjan

We just got back from a few days in Seward, and it felt great to get out of town and spend some time on the beach. Our cabin was right on the beach (I highly recommend Angel’s Rest cabins) and we were able to watch sea otters, sea lions, whales and countless sea birds right out the front windows.

We took a short 1/2 day whale watching cruise, (the whole day cruises don’t start up until tourist season actually begins) and even though we saw more wildlife from the cabin than we did on the boat, it felt good just to be out on the water.

Happy New Lunar Year, the Chinese year of the pig! As I mentioned last month, all calendars are arbitrary, but they provide the means to tell when it is time to celebrate. Like now! And may the pig year bring you all the prosperity it promises!
