Hello! This is Annie! While the first group was out fishing, the rest of us stayed ashore doing all kinds of stuff! This morning outside the Moose Lodge there was, you guessed it! A moose! She was relaxing in the snow and we enjoyed watching her from the porch. Later, a few of us, including me, went down to the Anchor Point Beach. The tide was really far out this time and there was a lot to look for along the beach. Did you know the Alaskan tide changes are some of the most dramatic in the world?! Dr. Bezotte spotted a half-eated sting ray in the tides and took it out for us to get a closer look! It was really cool to see it's jaws up close. Before we got to it, there were two eagles feasting on it! As we hiked along the beach, the tide started coming in. At some points we got our shoes wet and muddy in the wet sand that tried to pull them off! We hiked past some cliffs and saw lots of eagles along the way. After we got back to the lodges and had some lunch, we all piled into the van and headed to Homer for some food and gift shopping and for a tour around the Pratt Museum. There were some really interesting exhibits in the museum that pertained to our projects and a lot of information about the Exxon Valdez oil spill. After the museum we went for a short hike to the beach where we saw lots of dogs! Our group always seems to run into really nice dogs almost anywhere we visit. I can imagine our future trip to go dog sledding will be a favorite for most all of us (who aren't allergic ;-) ). We met up with everyone for dinner at the lodges and had chicken and yummy mashed potatoes along with some of the day's catch! I can't believe how fast this trip is going! Everyday is a new adventure and memory. There is so much to see and I hope I can come back here some day!
