6-30-2013 We have enjoyed walks to town – along the water’s edge – along with some murals. A bit of history – the 1964 Earthquake destroyed the water front buildings, along with the petroleum industry (have since moved to Valdez). The water front now has wonderful city parking for RVs from the harbor to town. Perfect for summer travelers and allows plenty of space for storms and possible tsunamis from earthquakes.
And sometimes we walk to the harbor to watch the boats come and go or to watch folks come in with their catch of Halibut and Salmon. A neat mural is there to greet travelers.
Today the day may be socked with with clouds and drizzle, but we can still watch and enjoy the tides, boats, sea otters playing, and birds coming and going. We watch with binoculars the folks climbing Mt Marathon – hope for race day – July 4th – it is a lot drier without so many clouds. Town is busy with all the tenters and RVs. Things will so be hopping!
