Almost 2 days without rain

We've had almost two days without rain the sun even came out. Our Thursday cruise we changed to Friday as the seas were too rough to get out to see the glaciers, they gave us the choice for refund, change day or go on the cruise and get a little refund for not being able to see all the places promised. So we changed days and then went for a drive, and the weather improved as we headed north. We went to Hope, AK a little place with a big history. At one time it was the place to be, before there was an Anchorage, it was the supply town for the miners up until the railroad by passed it and went to Anchorage instead. Now it's just part of Alaska's many little towns that hold on to their mining history.We then continued on to Anchorage to pick up a few things at Walmart, cats were needing some litter and tuna. It's a 3 hour drive up to Anchorage from Seward, but it is a beautiful drive and in the car we can stop more places to take photos then when we are driving the RV. We saw 2 Dahl sheep up on the slope and were able to turn around and get photos. (Posted on Flickr)

This morning the sun was shining and not a cloud in the sky, we knew we had made the right choice of changing the cruise date for today.
We had a nice time, chilly of course and the clouds did roll back in by mid afternoon but who cares when seeing whales, puffins, sea lions and big glaciers.
More pics on my Flickr site.
We experienced our first tiny earthquake tremor Wed. evening, the RV rocked a couple of times and we both wondered what was that then forgot about it, then we heard last night that there was a little quake near Anchorage.
More rain predicted for tomorrow, laundry day??? At $5 a load maybe not.
