Hello everyone! It's Katelyn and Lauren reporting today. Well this morning started bright and early with a 7 AM wake up call that put us on the road by 7:30 on our journey to Seward, AK. The three hour car ride was prolonged a little by our inner tourists' need to take pictures. We stopped at two locations that gave us great photo-opportunities; which is where the photo of the day was taken. When we finally arrived at Seward we had some extra time on our hands. Most of the group took this opportunity to visit some local shops and purchase some souvenirs for friends and family back home. At around 1 o'clock we went to explore the Alaskan Sea Life Center. We were split up into two groups that took turns going through the aquariums while the other group got to witness the behind the scene workings of the facilities. Here we learned about the various aspects of the center; rehabilitation and reintroduction of marine wildlife. After which we heard a presentation from John, who has been doing research for twelve years on the decrease in population of harbor seals. So, after such a long day, we were rewarded with another long car ride back to the cabins. After a delicious meal, we surprised Reese with cakes and cookies in order to properly celebrate her 20th birthday. The rest of the night will consist of journal entries and recovering from such a busy day.
Quote of the day: "my sea otter had to go to rehab, and I said no, no, no."
