Merry Christmas! Our gift to you… bald eagles in a snow storm, taken on Christmas Eve.
Remember the juvenile eagle that dive-bombed us? The one that I talked about in our last post? Well, these may be his (or her) parents. We have since discovered that there are at least four adult bald eagles living in Seward, plus the two juveniles.
What a sight they are.
Thank you for reading, and have a wonderful day!

Winter has settled in, and with it, so have we.
Nested is more like it. We love our cozy little apartment, and we curl up here like two hibernating bears.
A friend told me yesterday, “I haven’t seen any posts lately from Random Currents.”
Yes, it’s been a while.
A new job, a new home, a few bear attacks, and musings about the wonders of butter
We’ve been in Seward for a little over a week, and it’s been an eventful few days. Here are the highlights:
I’ll be honest: we knew almost nothing about Seward when we decided to move here.
On our trip from Homer back to Anchorage, we dropped by¹ and did a drive-through of the town (that didn’t take long). I also met the team at the facility where I hoped to work, and I liked the place and the people instantly. Seward also had a good word-of-mouth buzz, both from tourists we talked to at Denali and locals that we met in Anchorage and other places. The latter carries extra weight—when an Alaskan tells you they like something within their state, you should pay attention.
That being said, the wise thing would’ve been to spend a little more time in Seward before moving all of our belongings cross country, committing long-term to a job, and moving to this tiny, remote town. But that’s how we roll, man.
