Thursday, July 17th, Homer to Seward

Woke up to a glorious morning after sleeping with the windows open and the sounds of ocean waves lulling us to sleep.
After a yummy breakfast, we walked along the beach back to our room to prepare for our day's journey to Seward.
We picked up a few supplies at an international market and hit the road. Of course, we took a few detours to enjoy the sites. At Anchor Point, we walked along the beach and enjoyed the majestic views of Mt. Iliamna and Mt. Spurr. We swore we could see little puffs of smoke from the supposedly inactive volcano.
 We also visited a Russian Orthodox Church which is perched high upon a bluff near Ninilchik.
 As we proceeded toward Seward, we followed the aquamarine waters of the Kenai River nestled within the plush green mountains.
 Here's Martina right after dipping her hand in the chilling waters of the river.
Hoping to catch a glimpse of moose and other wildlife, we toured the rocky paths of the Skilak Wildlife Refuge.

 We reached today's destination--Seward--a quaint town situated right on the edge of Resurrection Bay.
