One of our readers suggested a bakery in town so this morning we headed to “The Moose is Loose” bakery. Well, the word is out on this place. It was so busy the pastries and bread were just flying out the door. We bought some pastry and some dark bread and went out to the RV to sample it. Everything was wonderful. In fact, the bread was so good we went back for a second loaf. Our thanks to Jim for the suggestion.
We decided to go to Kenai today as our research showed their visitor/cultural center had great exhibits and that their historical society is very active. Took the Kenai Spur Highway which is a good road and of course it was lovely along the way.
The Kenai Visitor and Cultural Center is very good. The staff was helpful, the museum excellent, and they had a fairly complete and well done wildlife display. We attended a Wildlife Art Show. The art was beautiful.
Later we moved the RV to a lovely location for lunch. Had considered moving the RV to the Cook Inlet Overlook at Scout Park but there was a wedding being held there. The view from our dinette window was lovely and relaxing at our lunch site.
Next, we took the Old Town Walking tour. It was a beautiful, sunny, breezy day for a walking tour. Enjoyed the old buildings, the Russian Orthodox Church and the Russian Orthodox Chapel. Best of all was the Russian Orthodox Cemetery. It was beautiful. Some of the graves receive a lot of upkeep and visits. This cemetery is still in use today. We were warned by the church pastor to beware of grizzlies in the cemetery but there were none when we were there.
Headed back to the RV after our walking tour and while fooling around on our computers we looked up in time to see a Mama moose and two calves running across the field next to the RV. Grabbed the camera and took the only shot we could get they were running so fast. Jerry went out later to see if something (a bear?) had been chasing them. Seeing the moose family made a lovely end to a lovely day.
