Back to work this week . . . lots of catch up to do. That’s the main problem with taking time off. But, fell right back into routine and got caught up. Now it is time for end of the fiscal year reports . . . yay!
Couple of big doings last weekend – Saturday hubbymoose and I took the two youngest granddaughters to Seward for the day. Sunday, ladybug took part in the Tri-the-Kenai triathlon.
Today, I share pictures of Seward . . .
Spotted this nice 57 Chevy in front of us as we drove through Cooper Landing – followed it into the rest area where we stopped so the girls could run and stretch their legs. Talked to the owner and discovered he is the older brother of someone ladybug dated in high school. Small, small, S.M.A.L.L. world.
Nice ride . . . I leard to drive in a 57 Chevy . . . the back seat is smaller than I remember. Hahahaha
On the way to Seward we stopped several places and pointed out sights to them . . . showed them just how big Kenai Lake is – from stem to stern, so to speak.
Once in Seward we drove to the waterside park and had our picnic lunch while watching sail boats and bicycle cops . . . and rolling down the big hill. Well, the girls rolled down the hill.
After lunch and the rolls down the hill . . . it was time to go to the TOY. I’ll tell you, Seward is at the top of the list for fun toys for the kids to play on and get all their energy out . . .
The wooden otters and orca were found along the marina walkways.
We left Seward after, of course, stopping to buy stuffies for the girls – I think two doggies came home with us – or maybe a dog and a bear.
Heading out of town . . . I got the brilliant idea to take a detour to show the girls Exit Glacier. Now, mind you, when I got up Saturday morning I rode the stationary bike 6 miles . . . and my muscles were cramped from riding in the car all day . . . but . . . I jiust had to stop. Yup, glutton for punishment.
We only hiked back .5 mile, and could see the glacier from there. It would have been another .7 miles to the face of the glacier, making the round trip nearly 2.5 miles. This way it was only 1 and that just about did me in. We stopped at a bench near the river and let the girls go down to the river to sift through the silty sand. Grandpa watched over them while I rested above them on the bench with a bottle of water.
The ride home was quieter . . as the girls settled down and played with their animals . . . and snacked. It was a lovely day to end my vacation. Thanks, girls. Love ya!
