Today was a site seeing day with some sun.. Yes!! We traveled up to Captain Cook State Park to check out the camp grounds. Its a really nice park close to miles of muddy beaches. I had been told you could find jade and agates on the beach and I found several treasures which I left behind for others to enjoy.
We had taken a picnic lunch and traveled over to Kenai Landing which was an old cannery that had been converted to shops. It was windy and cold and we ended up eating behind the old cannery which faced the boat launch. We watched the boats come and go quickly. ....almost every five minutes. The cannery conversion has not quit taken off and there was only one shop open.
We returned to Kenai and walked around "old town" which is just a few blocks longs. Most of the older buildings are permanent residences and the old Russian Orthodox church was not open. Apparently all of the artifacts had been moved out and put in storage.
This is one of the popular eating places in old town.
This was a cool clock in the newer park.
Tomorrow we head back to Anchorage on the Sterling Highway. Our objective is to make a "Costco run", and groceries and gas and then take the Glenn Highway to Palmer. I doubt that we will make it to Palmer, but we shall see.
