Port of Valdez


The Port of Valdez.  We pulled in to check out the ferry pick up as we have some designs on that coming up and strolled along the dock.  There were a couple of gents wetting a line and they seemed to be doing okay in the drizzle.  The gulls and waterfowl revel in this stuff of course.  Valdez has a population of about 4000 and I am pretty sure we met them all in about 2 hours.  It is a little town.  Note to RV’ers that there are probably more RVs in Valdez than residents during the summer.  We made some notes since we will be back but all in all it was a quick hit to town for some resupplies.  We were headed to Thompson Pass.  We will be back here though because we love the shore and this has some great potential.  Obviously Prince William Sound is dripping with scenery and wildlife.  We have an easier access to it via Whittier from where we live so this is the first time for us down here so far.  But we will be back, no doubt about it.
