Today we went on a 6 hour tour boat to Kenai Fjords National Park.  We left the dock at Seward at 11:30 am.  The view from the boat was great.  It was a clear sunny day.  We saw many little islands some still had bunkers on them which were built during WWII.  Others were home to sea birds and harbor seals and puffins.  We saw two sets of dalls porpus (spelling? type of dolphin), hump back whale and an orca pod.   The National Park is untouched by man and you can only see it from a boat or flying above it.  The setting for the animals is completely natural it was amazing to see them in a natural enviroment.  The park is also home to many glaciers, Bear Glacier is 13 miles long which is the longest glacier in North America.  John and Kelly became Jr. Rangers for this park also we had a park ranger as a tour guide.  We got back into town about 5:30 walked around the waterfront and headed to camp at Stoney Creek RV Park which is next to a creek!  We took a walk along the creek, had dinner in the RV and relaxed for the night.  This is our last night in the RV.  Can't believe it's been two weeks.  Tomorrow we head to Anchorage to return the RV.  We rented a car for the day to do some sightseeing in Anchorage since our flight doesn't leave until midnight.
