~~ Fun in the Kenai~~
The Kenai Peninsula offers a variety of activities in,
on, and around the waters of Cook Inlet.
Our first stop was at Whittier. You can drive there, but you have to go through a very long and dark
tunnel. We were surprised and happy to see that snow still lay in patches here and there when we got to the other side.
What a beautiful place to kayak.
We named this "Mystery Island".
The only way out of town is through this tunnel which is a couple of miles long, right through the mountain.
Our next stop was Seward. We visited the wonderful Alaska
Sea Life Center, and went on a cruise with
Kenai Fjords Tours -- where we saw sea otters, sea lions, many flavors of birds, Dall porpoise, and humpback
whales -- and ate a delicious meal on Fox Island.
