Rain Going into the Kenai; Rain Going Out of the Kenai

Tuesday, July 10, 2007

semi-overcast 0 °F

We wake up to the sound of rain again. The steady rain lasts all morning as we drive out of the Kenai Peninsula and onward to Palmer, Alaska. The scenery is beautiful between Anchorage and Seward, but the rain puts a damper on the scenery. We see some mountain goats on the rocks, so we stop and Jere hikes up the hill through the rain to take some pictures of them.

We arrive at the Homestead RV Park in Palmer in time to watch the All Star Baseball Game. The park has a nice view, so I decide to take our cat, Rosdale, for a walk. He’s only been out of the trailer a few times on this trip. He normally gets upset and wants to go back inside the trailer, but today I get him outside for about 30 minutes and we both enjoy some fresh air and patches of blue sky.


I do some laundry while Jere and Joe watch the game. A mother from Holland, who is also home-schooling while they are RVing, is doing her laundry at the same time. She’s from Holland and explains to me that home-schooling is illegal in Holland, and they will probably have to pay a fine when they return. Holland requires children to attend a brick-and-mortar school, not a homeschool. Interesting that a country that is so liberal in many other ways is so strict about schooling. A young woman who is tent-camping across Alaska this summer joins us and we all have a nice conversation, so laundry time seems to go very quickly.

Jere and I take a walk around the full campground after dinner. There’s actually another Colorado 5th wheel trailer here—we have not seen another Colorado 5th wheel like we have for the entire trip and this is the first time we’ve ever had an opportunity to talk to another Colorado RVer.
