      ... eagles, ducks, salmon, otters and seals. There were no bears, which was a shame.
      We found some otters to watch and followed them as they swam along the waters edge. too far away too get any photos other than dots. Every time you had them lined up they would dive and disappear for ages.Then we went chasing a few more and after watching them for a while we realized that they were seals.They were harbour seals which are a mottled grey and black. I learnt that at ...

She gave me directions to the old town but then said maybe I should take care as the Black Bears were about because of the Salmon running in all the creeks and there was a creek near the old town.

      ... largest earthquake ever recorded had its epicentre just outside Valdez, and the resulting tsunami wiped the town off the map, along with several other towns that we have previously visited like Seward.
