We all agree that Seward is a picturesque village, well worth a few days stay on your Alaskan tour. We were lucky to see two consecutive days of blue skies. The first was spent on a train from Anchorage, passing the turn again arm, glaciers and lakes. This was the third of our Alaskan Railroad train rides and, as we had been told, it was the best of the three. We left Anchorage early after arriving late the night before. So, we saw none of Anchorage, which was a bit of a shame. Ray stayed in Anchorage for 4 nights instead of seeing Seward with us. He’ll have to fill us in when we catch up with him tomorrow. All that we noticed was the bike path that went next to the coast and looked inviting ... read more

Bonjour à tous, Encore une journée assez exceptionnelle par la beauté des paysages. Nous sommes ce soir à Seward, 200km au sud d'Anchorage, dans Kenai Peninsula. Un gros port de pêche principalement axé sur le saumon (pacifique) et le flétan à cette époque de l'année, et le king crabe en hiver. Juste pour info. Superficie de l'Alaska 1 717 854 km2, 3 fois la France, et 750 000 habitants. Mais comme depuis plusieurs jours nous sommes dans ce type de paysage, les superlatifs commencent à me manquer. Un conseil à tous venez le vivre, venez le voir. Et demain on continue dans ce décor de Pacifique et de montagnes Pour ceux qui suivent son blogue, Pier vous fera vivre notre journée. Donc pour changer un peu, ce soir, je vais vous raconter quelques anecdotes sur ... read more

As light as the sky is in the morning, we seem to have no problem rising by 5AM; which, as it turns out was plenty of time to get to mass a block away at the 7:30AM mass at the cathedral. The service was quite nice and friendly; but, this was obviously not the mass with a choir or music or singing and even the hymns were spoken. A family of ten sat in the pew bench in front of us and the five boys and three girls ranging in age from two to eighteen were all very well behaved; well, the 2ndto youngest did get into a bit of trouble though we have no idea what he did wrong. However he must have done something to annoy his mother, and she just gave him a ... read more

I've heard so much about the beauty of the Seward Hwy and it exceeded my expectations!! Gorgeous mountains and phenomenal glacier lakes and rivers all see green and so clear.! Spectacular!! Got situated in our cabin on Kenai Lake. 2nd dry camp, no electricity, no running water and a luxurious outhouse. Very secluded. Large deck with a chimera and virtually no bugs.. Rainy loved it!

Vancouver to Seward 21-31 May 2017 We boarded the Holland America ship Noordam by lunch on Sunday 21st with some trepidation as Jim and I were unsure we would enjoy the cruise 'experience'. However we were soon settled into our 'stateroom', cabin in other words. It was spacious with a queen size bed, small sofa, table, desk, TV, double wardrobes, ensuite with bath, and best of all, a private balcony with a table and two chairs complete with footstools. Getting to grips with the complexities of 10 decks, four entertainment venues, (in fact I think there are 5 but I did not see the last one until we were disembarking) numerous bars and quiet areas including a library, two pools, three hot tubs, a fitness centre and spa, medical centre, casino, shops, two main restaurants and ... read more
We can never get confused!
Ketchikan - this was the red light district.
It is still a colourful area.

We reached Seward late afternoon on Saturday. We checked into the Breeze Inn, just off the main drag through Seward; it was an odd motel that backs up to a pretty busy road. This wasn’t the best room we stayed in during the trip, but was clean enough. One of the most interesting things about the hotel is the display of photos from the 9.2 magnitude earthquake that occurred on Good Friday in 1964. A huge chunk of the coast dropped into the bay, the shock of which created a 30 foot tall Tsunami wave that went nearly a mile in-shore. There was also massive damage in Anchorage, 75 miles away. After settling in, we walked to the "restaurant row" for dinner, where we had fresh fish at The Alaska Seafood Grill. It's a very casual ... read more

22 Aug 2016: Today we left Soldotna for Seward, a drive of approximately 120 miles. The route was easy to follow. North on route 1 to route 9, over Moose Pass and into Seward. The city maintains public campgrounds for a fee. We stayed at the one offering electricity and water. It afforded a magnificent view of Resurrection Bay and the surrounding glacier-clad mountains. To our left (North) was the boat harbor. Every day the view changed with the amount of sunlight and fog. We had two excursions here plus a visit to the Seward Marine life research center, an organization that rehabilitates young or injured marine mammals. Manny species were on display including fish and birds. We also took several scenic drives and a visit to a yarn store, which Jeanne likes to do every ... read more
