July 7, 2017 - Seward, AK

Early this morning we went out for a short drive to explore Seward a bit before meeting the caravan at the small boat harbor at 11 am for our 4 1/2 hour cruise on Resurrection Bay.

Kenai Fjords Cruise left from Seward Boat Harbor at 12:45 pm, headed toward Fox Island where lunch was served.
Our friend, Kat, was not able to get on the same cruise
with us, so she got on another cruise that followed us about
30 minutes later.  She is on the left side at the top deck

After the cruise we went back to the campground to rest a bit.  We had pan fried halibut for supper and it was mighty good.
