Caines Head State Recreation Area

We put on our Wellington boots and trekked the 5 mile beach trail to North Beach, being very careful to time our hike with low tide. In order not to be trapped by high tide, we hired a water taxi to pick us up and return us to Seward. What a beautiful beach and fjord along Resurrection Bay! While we had time before our boat, we hiked an extra 2 miles to Ft. McGilvray, a WWII bunker-like installation built to guard the Alaskan coast. An eery reminder of the fears during WWII.
