We walked into Seward today . . . . 1.1 miles to the Alaska SeaLife Center. It was really pricey - $65.09 for the two of us. Nevertheless, we really enjoyed the museum. I took a ton of photos. The Alaska SeaLife Center educates the public re: the conditions of the oceans, rescues stranded animals and researches the problems associated with the influences of man on earth.

After lunch in the RV, we went into the other part of Seward. I stopped at the Ranger Station to get a stamp for my National Park Passport. Before returning to the RV, we watched fisherman attempting to snag salmon – interesting way to fish.

After dinner a bald eagle flew low around the bay to entertain us. Then a smaller black bird chased him away. We love nature.

Wildlife Spotted: lots of species at the Alaska SeaLife Center – fish; Steller Sea Lions; Seals; Ducks; Seagulls; Puffins; King Eider; Jelly Fish; Octopus; also a Red Salmon that Landon snagged.
