of pounding rain and heavy winds, which I am certain is very disheartening for the tourists that
come everyday on the big ships. I feel bad seeing them covered head to toe in plastic trying to
stay dry and dashing from store to store between deluges. But, if it was sunny and warm all of
the time then we wouldn't have 8500 people living on this island, we'd have 85,000!
My older daughter is a checker in the grocery store and meets people from all over the world
on a daily basis. I think it's a great way for her to experience other cultures and get out of her
comfort zone a little--especially when they barely speak English and are needing directions!
Another amazing photo by Tim Shobe here in town. I have seen the eagles do this up close and personal and it is mind blowing how athletic they are! I have seen them grab a fish from the water without missing a beat and fly away while reaching into their talons and eating the fish.
My older daughter took this photo of another gorgeous sunset. I love the way the sun looks striped--too cool!
I took this photo over at the well while getting water. The water is crystal clear and iceberg cold. This is a salmon stream, so in the late fall it is filled to overflowing with salmon making their way upstream to spawn. The water level gets so low that the salmon are mostly dry and still trying to swim upstream.
I took this photo down the road from our house a couple of miles. My brother's were painting a house on the property and called me to come over and see the herring spawning. The spawning was a little far away to get a picture of, but I think this was a nice photo- op as well.
There is nice weather forecasted for this weekend so we are planning a boat trip to the south end. Stay tuned for pictures!
