Short Visit to Seward

Bridget and I spent the day in Seward with my brother and his wife. While having lunch, we spotted three eagles flying around the small boat harbor. Bridget took this iPhone photo of the one posing for us. We believe that they were building a nest somewhere as the other two were carrying around twigs.

We were there checking out hotels for a family reunion next year. While we were there, we visited five hotels and checked out their conference facilities and room options. Seward is a beautiful place to visit with a lot of activities ranging from whale and glacier cruises, sea kayaking, cycling, hiking, etc.

The restaurant was right next to the small boat harbor and across from the commercial fish processing plants. Very picturesque. It rained for most of the day but there were short moments of blue skies.

The last photo was taken on the trip back looking south across Turnagain Arm.

Great photos Richard, and all from iPhones too I bet.

Looks like a spectacular location for a family reunion. Did you book the eagle as well ;0)

Seward is a beautiful location. And the drive out from Anchorage is stunning.

RichardM said...

Maybe. There are some really scenic areas on the drive up as well...

All phone pics. It's almost too much trouble to use a regular camera and unless it's low light, the results wouldn't be much different.

We thought that it would be a great location especially for those that had never visited before. Lots of activities, beautiful scenery especially as this may be their only visit to Alaska.

I didn't get the eagle's business card. But there is a lot of competition so it shouldn't be difficult to line something up.

I can almost smell the sea air!

I have always loved the smell of the ocean. Though I don't miss the humidity when it's cold.
