May 25th-26th, 2010 pt.1

This morning we made our way to Seward to meet up with Paulmer.  We kept in touch with Paulmer who told us back in Florida that he would possibly be in Alaska for work this summer.  Last time we heard he was in Seward and had invited us to come over.  Told us to look for him in the rail yard, but this was a while ago so we’re not sure if he’s still there.  Sent a message telling him we’re on our way; maybe the internet is hard to come by down in that area.  It’ll be nice to see Paulmer again; especially travelling all this way from Florida when we last saw him in January.  

Once again we were blessed with fantastic weather and beautiful scenery.  I believe those are the Kenai Mountains up ahead.

Somehow we managed to pull over and find a gorgeous spot near Moose Pass to take photos

This is what it’s all about!  My sister jokingly wondered why we didn’t wait to take the shot with a bald eagle soaring high above us in the background. 

Many cruise vessels dock in Seward and board The Alaska Railroad; a major tourist attraction in the summer

We tried looking for Paulmer in here, but to no avail.

Then we tried to find him here, but nobody was around.

We rode around town hoping maybe that we’ll run into him.  The town wasn’t big and I’m sure Paulmer would remember us if he saw us.  We hung out at the grocery store and had dinner there.  There’s only one grocery store in town so he’s bound to walk in here at some point.

Time is ticking away and still no sign of Paulmer.  We tried the train terminal and asked a guy, who also rode a KLR, and told us that he was here.  He gave us directions to where we might find him, but I remembered checking there already.  We’ll try one more time and if he’s not there, I guess it wasn’t meant to be.  We rode back to the yard and noticed a blue van parked that wasn’t there before.  We slowly approached the van not wanting to startle anyone in case it wasn’t him.  “Paulmer?  Are you in there?”  Somebody’s sleeping in the van, or was sleeping I should say.  Whoever it is, I think we woke them up.

Rippleless waters.

The Alaskan money shot.

Anyone in there?
