Day 38, 7/6/15, Monday
Weather: Foggy in the morning, partially sunny in the afternoon, and light rain in the evening. Temperatures were in the70s.
We had brought enough clothing with us to last eight days and today was a laundry day. The first thing then on the agenda was to spend time doing the wash. With the completion of this chore we moved on to the nearest gas station to top off our tank. We had arrived yesterday with about eight gallons left in the tank and wanted to fill it up while we were still out this morning.
The family who was in the RV next to us came over to talk. They are a family who had moved to Anchorage thirty-five years ago from Korea. They have two children who moved to the lower forth-eight to attend college and decided to remain living there, one in Boston and one in Chicago. We had a good time talking with them.
Later in the afternoon, we walked to the National Park Ranger office to check on ferry schedules to Kodiak and to use the wifi to update the blog and check email. A man saw Paul wearing the University of Scranton sweat shirt and this led to a long conversation with him and his wife. They had been from Pennsylvania but eventually relocated to a town near Tampa, Florida. Once again we talked for quite a while and had a good time talking with them.
We did manage to get the ferry information and complete the tasks that we needed to accomplish on the computer. A short walk back to the campgrounds, dinner, and a night of relaxation completed our day.
Tomorrow we plan on driving a couple of hours to Soldotna and Homer which are also located on the Kenai Peninsula.
