07/03/2019  No Travel Day - Cook Inlet Low Tide

Start Location:
Start Time: N/A
Mileage:  54,324
Cost Per Night: $37.50 USD
Weather: 56 - 68 F Sunny

The sky is very clear this morning; the fire smoke had dissolved nicely. It was super nice have that unobstructed view of Mount Redoubt again. Redoubt is an active stratovolcano in the largely volcanic Aleutian Range.

Low tide was at 10:00 a.m. this morning. In a nutshell, tides are the rising and falling of water levels in relation to the land around it. Tides are the result of the moon’s gravitational pull on the Earth.

We took a walk on the beach (Cook Inlet). The beach was calm because the inlet was closed to charter guides. There really were not any tide pools; however, we did see some sea life – Star Fish, Mussels, Crabs . . . We also found a ton of squawking Seagulls and Bald Eagles searching for fish carcasses.

Today was RV ‘dump day’ again. It takes less than a half hour, so it is not too bad. We spent the rest of the day just relaxing and enjoying the quiet. (The two Asian families with the three noisy nosey boys left earlier in the morning).

Wildlife Spotted: Eagles; Sea Gulls; Dead Fish
