A REALLY Laid-back Day in Valdez

We got energetic enough to get our fresh water tank filled this morning. The campground host brought a water tank (with a heavily leaking hose – put almost as much water in the road as in our tank) in the back of his pickup truck along with the man who runs the fishing boat tours. Together with Don, they BS’ed for awhile, and finally Don got tired of the ‘talk’ and said the tank was full enough.

Then we took care of another necessity of life – laundry – a good facility ($2 wash $2 dry) inside the Tesoro fuel station. Ran into Mary and Gary who came back to do their laundry later, then Carol and Dennis in the hamburger joint next door to have lunch. If you want to see the size of my burger, look at the pic Dennis took and posted on his blog. In fact, even if you don’t want to see that, go there to see some excellent pics he took with his ‘whale’ lens of the eagles in our campground. What a photographer! (And, by the way, I couldn’t finish the burger. As for the ice worms, you had to be there!)

Also, be sure to read Larry and Marilyn’s blog as they did some different things today.

After putting away clean clothes, making the bed, etc. we took a ride up to the Valdez Glacier, a short drive from our campsite. The day was still overcast and drizzly, but at least we got a few glimpses.




Tonight we watched “Unstoppable” a 2010 movie about a runaway train, starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pine. Good flick. If you haven’t seen it, look for it as a rental or cheap purchase.
