A bit bitter sweet--this is our last morning to wake up at a wonderful campsite on this Great Alaskan Adventure that we started 31 days ago. Ben and I went for a walk to Kenai Lake and again marveled at the beautiful smokey turquoise water and the still snow covered mountain peaks.

Drive back to Anchorage to re-provision, head south to Whittier, spend another day on Kenai Peninsula and back into Anchorage a few days before picking up Blue's new owners at the airport in Anchorage. Mike and Laura Taylor, good friends from Hawaii, are taking Blue off of our hands and repeating our route back down from Alaska via the Alaska Marine Highway.
