Taking the Reindeer for a Walk in Seward
A day in Seward, Alaska...what else do you do but take your reindeer for a walk? Well, you might visit the Sea Life Center, check out Exit Glacier, go fishing, or see Mile 0 of the Iditarod Trail.
You could take a wildlife cruise or go for a ride on a dog sled. You could visit the gift shops (it is, after all, a tourist town). Or, you can just admire the beauty that is all around you. Mountains. Resurrection Bay.
Seward has its share of tourist attractions. The Sea Life Center is really quite interesting. We've gone out on several of the day cruises, and enjoyed them all. Major Marine Tours combines a wildlife cruise with an Alaskan Salmon dinner. Kenai Fjords Tours include narrative by a Kenai Fjords National Park Ranger. The evening cruise to Fox Island also included a buffet salmon dinner, but the leisurely boat ride to and from the island was the best part.
To learn more about the history of Seward, there's the museum. And, movies of the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake.
We took in those things on our first visits to Seward.
Now when we go, we watch. We watch the sea otters and stellar seals. We drive out to Lowell Point to see what is happening there and watch the eagles. We sit at the campground and watch the cruise ships come and go -- at night, with all their bright lights, slowly setting out on their voyage, it is quite the site, and so very peaceful. We at the boat harbor and watch the sailboats, and fishing boat, and party boats. We watch the ocean waves and the fog over the mountains.
And, we watch people taking their reindeer for an afternoon stroll.
