This is Charlie. He was stationed down by the river to help and impart all sorts of knowledge about panning for gold.
Eventually, we figured we weren't going to strike it rich and we headed back to the main street.
On the way back, we checked out the inside of some of the buildings.
Next stop was Aleyeska. The day didn't allow for the tram ride, but Chretien is a ski instructor part time in the winter and he wanted to see the resort and mountain.
Then it was time for dinner. We opted to head back toward the motel, and wound up at:
Turnagain Arm Pit BBQ. We sat outside. Who can complain about this view, even if the Seward Highway is right.there.
Then it was back to the motel to pack. The kids played outside (there is tons of grass, since it's also an RV park) while we managed to cram everything back into our suitcases.
But not before we had one more day to spend.
