We are in the Edgewater RV Park on the Kenai River in Soldatna for a week. We had an RPI reservation here for a week starting June 23. This was a good deal for us and although we had only a general itinerary to this point, we were focused on getting here by the 23rd which we did. The park itself is ordinary, but the $10/day price for full hookups in this part of Alaska is exceptional. The park has a short trail down to a ramp on the pretty and rapidly moving Kenai river. Immediately across the highway is an even better fishing and viewing ramp. This area is known for its great Salmon fishing. Even those without great skill often catch many fish here. We are just waiting to catch a big one.


Since we are here for a week, we are taking things a bit slower and catching up on a few things. We found a Home Depot in Kenai about 10 miles away and bought a few household things we needed. We repaired a broken drawer and Dennis made what turned out to be a minor repair on our generator. We also have spent a lot of time trying to get our Tom Tom GPS working right, with calls and emails to tech support. So far no luck with the Tom Tom which has caused us to make a couple of wrong turns. It is funny how quickly we can become dependent on new technology.


Today we made a trip in the car to the beach area at Kenai and the Captain Cook Recreation area about 20 miles further on. Later we took a drive to the end of Funny River Road through part of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. But the only large wildlife that we saw were a mother moose and her two young calves.
