Aug. 8: Wash, Walmart, and Kenai Harbor Cannery Row
I told Jerry to be sure to get my best side. Anyway, as you can see there was lots of laundry to do today.Our wounded warrior is still able to help with the shopping! Seems like he is having too much fun if you ask me………..
And now for a bit of sightseeing. Commercial fisherman with purse nets bring the fresh caught Salmon to these docks for processing.
Until the tide comes back in, this boat won’t be going anywhere. We had previously taken a pic of this dock from a park on a high bluff that overlooks the mouth of the Kenai River.More boats in the harbor. Many of the tides move nearly 30 feet from low to high.
This is one of the canneries that are all around the harbor.
This is a unique and protected tidal area.
Haven’t we all wanted to say this a few times ourselves?
This area is supposed to be good for spotting caribou.
We saw two. This was the closer one. There is a larger herd that frequents the area, however we did not see them in our travels today.
This is a creative use for an old double-decker bus. Not many of these relics around anymore.This burl is about the size of a basketball. The tree is near the river’s edge.
One last chore before we go home to have popcorn and call it a day.
