Hope, AK

6-22-13 Time to take a scenic drive to Hope --- about 75 miles. Hope is on the Kenai side of Turnagain Arm.  We were in luck to finally see a Bore Tide - The bore tide is a huge wave or series of waves that advance down Turnagain Arm in a wall of water up to 10-feet high – depending on the height of the tide.  More details can be found at  The tide today was not huge, but could be seen in sections as it advanced back up Turnagain Arm.2013-06-22 Hope 008

We stopped for lunch at the Sea View Café – Yummy food!  Enjoyed the mountain, lake, stream views along the way.  Stopped at Moose Pass for the Summer Solstice Celebration2013-06-22 Hope 021

Enjoying the views from our water front property in Seward….. Watching the clouds, tides, boats move in/out.  Easy walks to town or to the harbor.  Denny still hasn’t met a stranger.  Hope to see that full moon after midnight, but doubtful with the clouds.2013-06-22 Hope 003
