There is quite an assortment of vessels to watch
out on the water now that everyone is coming
back to town. At any time you can watch mega
yachts driving by next to commercial fishing
boats and the huge Coast Guard cutter.

Today I thought this was interesting:

The first barge had 2 huge mounds of sand or gravel and
is headed towards the airport.

The 2nd barge has a huge crane on it, along with assorted
other vehicles and equipment. We only have one road
through town, so it probably makes a whole lot more
sense to move this stuff on the water rather than
getting out and blocking traffic for miles.

Our part-time neighbor is here now and has been out
fishing a few times. He doesn't keep all of the salmon
he catches, he brings us quite a bit of it. I am always
looking for new ways to fix salmon and came across
this recipe that is kind of a teriyaki that is made
with maple syrup. It is really good and very easy.

It is as simple as mixing a few ingredients
pour them over the fish in the pan, marinate
for 30 minutes and cook for 20 minutes
at 400 degrees.




  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pound salmon


  1. In a small bowl, mix the maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic, garlic salt, and pepper.
  2. Place salmon in a shallow glass baking dish, and coat with the maple syrup mixture.
  3. Cover the dish, and marinate salmon in the refrigerator 30 minutes, turning once.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  5. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven, and bake salmon uncovered 20 minutes,
  6. or until easily flaked with a fork.
