2019 Alaska Vacation Journal (50)

2019 Alaska Vacation Journal (50)

06/30/2019  No Travel Day - Windy Day, Ninilchik, Alaska

Start Location:
Start Time: N/A
Mileage:  54,324
Cost Per Night: $37.50 USD
Weather: 55 - 68 F Sunny (20 MPH Winds Clears Some of the Smoke)

It was very windy today – 20 mph. It shook the ‘Beast’ and creating flamboyant "whoosh" sounds.

Since we do not have a sewer hook-up; we had to ‘dump’ this morning. It is an annoying chore, but well worth it considering the fantastic view this RV Park garnishes.

Then we went for a sightseeing drive. We ended up fourteen miles up a gravel road (Oil Well Drive by Anderson); no wildlife in sight.

We did find a beautiful secluded pond. However, when we got out of the car, we were attacked by mosquitoes!!! Paul received two nasty bites (one on the temple & one on his left arm) as he gallantly protected me from the pesky predators. (Later I found out I was not spared – tip mosquitoes are drawn to urine! I got six bites on my butt!)

Wildlife Spotted: Gulls & Eagles
