We have been having such a pleasant time visiting the Alaska kids!  I haven't been so relaxed in a long time, and wonder of wonders, I am sleeping at night!  Must be the quiet, the fresh air, the stress free life we are having up here.  Beats living next to a 4 lane highway, that's for sure!

Rush hour in Seldovia

So we went fishing the other day.  We set a long line with about 30 octopus baited  hooks hanging from it, and let it set for several hours.  We then went back to check it and hopefully pull in some halibut.
 This is Captain Chris, our son
 Ernie and Chris pulling in the line
 No halibut, just starfish!
But who cares when this is the scenery!

 We hung around the Boardwalk
 We went to the playground at the little park
 We had a beach picnic with all the awesome people up here
 We hid in the tall grasses and fireweed
 We walked around and looked at the pretty flowers
 and gardens
Amy and I picked raspberries and the 2 1/2 year old berry kid ate berries!

Yes, we are having a wonderful time.  The weather has been cloudy and rainy for the most part, but the climate, the scenery and the people are just as awesome as can be!
