Stopped at Wasilla hoping to have breakfast with Sarah Palin but she was busy. So a quick coffee and danish and south to Anchorage. We'd forgotten what a big town was like with the associated traffic congestion. Stopped at Alaska Leather to look around and buy a couple motorcycle accessories. Signed the official log for the Dust to Dawson rally we'd attended earlier in Dawson City. Will purchase the official group midnight photo once we return home.
Always neat driving along the coast south of Anchorage. Heavy traffic but great views.
In Seward, we camped at the public campground ($10). Hundreds of campers here right on the ocean bay. View was great with numerous style boats including cruise ships entering the harbor. We'd learn later that an off-shore storm was forcing boats and sailors to take refuge in the harbor for a few days.
Shot pool and ate a great meal uptown. Talked for a few hours to a tug boat crew from San Diego that were taking cargo north along the coast to Nome, AK. Interesting life and quite lucrative.
Picture shows Mount Seward that the town is built up against. Anually, there's a running race to the top and back. Record is 43 minutes and 23 seconds.
