Saturday, May 12, Seward Trip Part 1

Got up Saturday and left on our annual trip to Seward for my birthday. It was somewhat overcast when we left and the weather forecast for the weekend didn't seem too promising. The further south we got, the more accurate the forecast became. By the time we reached Turnagain Pass, it had begun to snow. As you can see from the photos, there was quite a bit of snow from the winter still on the ground. From there to Seward it alternated between snow and rain showers all the way.These 2 moose seemed to be enjoying the afternoon grazing for grasses. This moose wasn't even bothered by the waterfowl swimming near it. Once we reached Seward, it basically rained on and off for the rest of the day. We did take advantage of one of the breaks in the rain to take a stroll on the beach. I hunted for sea glass while Greg ran off to chase a bald eagle that flew from one tree to another. Once it decided to stay perched for a minute, Greg was able to get several great shots. The clouds were quite heavy and once it began to sprinkle rain again, we headed for the car. Before we reached the car, we happened to see 2 eagles perched in the a tree and Greg happily took more photos.
