Mother’s Day weekend in Seward

10 05 2010

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend.  We had been planning for a few months to go to a bed and breakfast in Homer but when we called to make sure our reservations were OK the owner said the facilities were not ready (still 2 feet of snow and no electricity yet).  We just bought a new (well, new to us) camper so we decided to take it out to Seward.  It turned out to be one of the most beautiful weekends.

On the drive down Friday afternoon I saw a few beluga whales on Turnagain Arm.  We ended up in a camping spot right near the water.  And we couldn’t have ordered better weather- there was not a cloud in the sky for two days!  We got to walk around Seward, meet new friends, play with the kids at the park, go to Mass at a new church, and see all the wildlife (sea lions, otters, bald eagles etc). 

Hopefully you can tell by the photos below how beautiful it was and how much fun the boys were having.  What a great way to start off the summer!


Happy Mother’s Day!

I’ve been planning early for Mother’s Day by planting some extra flower seeds (mostly marigolds) in little pots to give to my mother-in-law. Since they aren’t looking too great, I’d better start making other plans!Mothers Day 2009
