... was called. Group
7 was what we had been designated.
We put the TV onto the ship channel so we could hear the
announcements. They slowly progressed through the different groups numerically.
When they got to Group 6 we decided to get onto the deck above so we could go
down the stairs as soon as our group was called.
We had just got to Deck 3 when our group was called. We
headed off the ship to our designated bus. This would take us to ...
Where do I start....Alaska is beyond beautiful. I'm officially in love, if I haven't said that already. I enjoy the company I work for also! Yesterday as a part of training we went on a 6 hour boat cruise through the Kenai Fjords National park! I got paid to see whales and puffins and glaciers. How AWESOME!

... it was about 5.40pm, and the next tunnel opening was at 6.00pm. If you miss the 15 minute opening, you have to wait an hour for the next one! We ended up being second in line for cars, although the tour buses got the jump on us first.
I freaked out when I entered the destination for our next address in Seward and it said it would take 2.45 hours to get there. I don't know whether it was poor satellite reception or outdated information, but it took an hour less than that. ...
... invitation to their home if we are still in the area so that Greg could go out on his boat fishing.
Another footnote: I really admire what the Alaskan Wildlife Dept. are doing about the bears. They seemed to have learned what not to do from the lower 49 states and Canada. They warn you about them and they really enforce the garbage issue. They need the fish just as much as the Alaskans do and more than the tourists.
Wow... what a night. Then cleaning and packing to leave for Seward. Out the door at the crack of 10am! (that's 1pm for you CST folks). On the way out of town Kellei requests coffee... so 5 blocks down and at our first stop. Of course, we all had to get something.

Small and cozy. Very friendly host. Slightly smaller rooms than anticipated, but very clean. The big bummer for us was the microwave being in the lobby when we were planning on home-made food for a day or 2.
And the location - was right by the port, just a 10min walk to the Kenai Visitor center and restaurants.
Would definitely recommend.
