Diaries of an independent traveller

A complete change of scene this week as I’ve been sorting through photos taken on the last part of our Alaskan trip (in August 2018 back in the days when we could travel further afield).

Our week-long cruise from Vancouver finished at the port of Seward, situated on Resurrection Bay on the southern coast of Alaska. The bay is a deep-water inlet off the Gulf of Alaska and the journey across the gulf from the south east “panhandle”of Alaska had taken us a full day and a couple of nights. Fortunately it was a relatively calm trip despite my fears of being tossed around on the open seas!

It had been a beautifully bright and sunny evening when we left the serene waters of Glacier Bay (see here for that post) but stepping out on deck at dawn in Seward was quite a contrast. Long white clouds reminded us of a trip to New Zealand’s South Island back in 2008 and the port was shrouded in mist and damp, fine drizzle.

We weren’t due to board our Alaskan Railroad train up to Anchorage till early evening so we had a day to while away in town – I’ll cover that in the next post but here are some introductory photos of Seward to set the scene.

    1. It’s certainly atmospheric isn’t it Jo – an unusual formation with the clouds hanging so low yet you can still see the buildings in the background. Yes my dad is going well thanks – they had several inches of snow again on Thursday up in Harrogate so he hasn’t been getting out for his walks but fine apart from that πŸ™‚ Enjoy the rest of the day πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

        Logan was wanting snow to go sledging. It didn’t arrive in Leeds the first weekend but they have some now. They’re very welcome to it πŸ€£πŸ’•

        1. I think it’s very pretty to look at from afar Jo- not sure I’d like going out and about in freezing conditions! Harrogate has been quite bad but the town is on a hill so guess that makes a difference.

            Apparently they went sledging in the dark, when James got home from work πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
