This day dawned wet and foggy, not unlike numerous other days on the road have begun. However, this day stayed that way for almost our whole time on the road. We left Anchorage and drove along the Turnagain Arm of the Cook Inlet in rain and fog.
We stopped in Girdwood for a coffee, and then decided to take a sidetrip along Portage Valley towards Portage Glacier and Whittier. Ernie was excited to drive through the Whittier tunnel, which we have gone through before, but on the train, not in our vehicle. This is the harbor at Whittier. There are thousands of boats in the harbor. The Alaska Marine Highway System Ferry leaves from here to go through Prince William Sound to Cordova, a trip that Chris and I did in 2002.
We are at a motel in Homer. The car is loaded with the items we shopped for the last couple of days. We have: Apples, a few gluten free items, a fitting for the propane grill, gas for the boat, beer, wine, and chicken feed. I think we are ready to load the ferry tomorrow morning and head 17 miles across Ketchemak Bay to Seldovia and our son, Chris and his sweet Amy. Cannot wait!
