Tim, Pam and Jim
Day 42, Friday, July 9
We awoke at 9:30 am and it was 47 degrees outside. We went to Seward to the Air Force Rec Camp to camp with Tim, Pam and Tim. Ed is going out with Tim on his boat tomorrow. We stopped at the Showcase Lounge for a ‘bucket of butt’ (halibut), and then went to Safeway and the Post Office. We checked in to the campground and had a campfire with Tim, Pam and Jim along with Sean and Greta, their friends. We turned in about 11:30.
Day 43, Saturday, July 10
Ron knocked at the door at 8:00 am. He had driven down from Quartz Creek to go fishing with the guys. Tim, Jim, Ron and Ed left in Tim’s boat to some undisclosed location in Resurrection Bay to fish about 30 miles out. When they arrived there was an armada of boats out there. It was foggy, rainy, and cold until about 1:00. They started catching silver salmon around 2:30. After about 30 minutes, Tim got a hook imbedded into his left index finger. Jim sharpened the filet knife to cut it out…didn’t work, so after Ed had caught 3 silvers and Ron had caught 2, they turned the boat around and headed in to the Seward Hospital to have the hook cut out. Jeanne, Greta and Pam went to lunch at the Train Wreck and shopped in Seward while the guys were fishing. The guys cleaned and sealed the fish at the campground fish house. Pam made Taco Soup for dinner for everyone. We had a great campfire with them and Sean and Greta and laughed about the day. Ron left to go home and we turned in around 12:30.
Day 44, Sunday, July 11
When we awakened it was 57 degrees. We stayed a little longer than Tim and Pam. Carol McNaughton called to see what time we were coming by and wanted us to stay one more night at Quartz Creek, but we decided to say good-bye and head up to Tim and Pam’s for the night. They offered to let us stay in their driveway. We stopped in Anchorage to go to Costco and Best Buy (hand vac). We had a nice dinner with Tim, Pam, Jim and Les. We turned in at 10:00.
