The Other Side of the Bay

Decided to do a little tour to see what was on the other side of the bay. We drove past Eads Auto on the way. Looks like it's time to do some trimming so you don't lose sight of the tree for the forest.

We could see the white "tent" structure from our campsite.

There was quite a large area for boats to be pulled out for maintenance, including a 250 ton travel hoist operated by the city.

The Saturn is a wood fishing boat that appeared to be in pretty good shape, at least on a quick drive by.

I liked the creative use of shipping containers to build this large shelter. Couldn't see much of the boat inside but it did seem to fill the space.

The rust & rot picture for the day is this sign at a viewpoint named for a senator that helped the city developed the industrial area we'd just visited.

The Boy Scouts have apparently had an impact, or perhaps it was a large oil company... These matching boats, mounted in shipping cradles, are part of the emergency response fleet for oil spills, etc.


  1. Loved the car picture!

    We are slowly heading your way. Also plan to do Denali/Fairbanks last.

    Do hope our paths cross...don't know how long it will be before we get to the Kenai P.

    Enjoying your posts.

  2. Looks like we're finished with the Kenai. Positioning for a weekend at a small goldmine, some business in Anchorage, and then to Nancy Lakes northwest of Wasilla this time next week.
