Naw, just kidding. We went out last week and looked
around the cabin my husband is going to be doing
some work on. The minks have pulled all of the
insulation out from underneath and new insulation
has to be applied up under the whole cabin.

It was a beautiful, sunny day and the whales were
all around us stuffing themselves with herring.

So where there are whales there are fish! I didn't fish, I
just sat back in the sun and breathed in the fresh air.

Literally the only sounds are the beeping of the fish
finder on the boat, the water lapping quietly, the
eagles screeching and the whales blowing.

Do we HAVE to go back to town?

The scenery sucked, but I tolerated it:

Here is the cabin. It is going to be fun staying here for
a weekend because it is fully furnished and has a large
woodstove, refrigerator and comfortable furniture.

I didn't get to take any pictures of the inside because
there are quilts over the windows and we didn't go in.

I am hoping we can stay here when the Herring Fishery
starts. One year they were right in front of this cabin!
The owner told us they were out on the dock once and
2 Humpback whales came so close to the dock they
could have touched them. They just kind of hung out
there, swimming around, 2 ton fish.

The gun, always with the gun.

There is a nice view of the north end of town from the
other side of the dock too.

Heading back before dark.

GT, I saw you at Susan's (Schnitzel and the Trout), and thought I'd stop by to say hello. So happy to have done so for Alaska! beautiful and an amazing place. We have visited twice now and I'd love to go again. Friends of ours have a place on the Kenai; fortunately we visited last July, but unfortunately, the river was near flood conditions. We had a great time anyway.

By the way, I love "Tillie"; my grandmother's name was Tekle (Tillie).
