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 http://www.alaska.org/advice/alaska-bore-tide  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
