Seward is located on Resurrection Bay, east coast of Kenai Peninsula. We camped at the start of the Iditarod Trail in the City Campground looking right out at this view. .

The campground is next to Small Boat Harbor. Lots of cruise ships and small boats in and out of this harbor.

The town is filled with beautiful gardens. These tiger lilies were seen in front of many of the homes.

View out our front window of these little sea otters. They float on their backs and hold their shells in their paws to crack for a tasty meal.

They are so darn cute.

The town has murals painted on many of the businesses. I loved the wildflower scenes.

Another mural . All of the trash cans in the town were also painted and had great inspiring messages. Seeing such artistry, makes you want to clean up the area.

A trip to the Seal Life Center, an ocean wildlife rescue center houses nearly 2000 invertebrates, fish, seabirds and marine mammals. These little moon jellyfish just free float.

The horned puffin is such a cutie. He dives to get fish and then keeps consuming food until he can' t fly and if he does, he may drop from the sky like a potato. They actually fly better underwater. It was fun to watch them diving for food.
