I was lucky enough to be able to get in a quick trip to Alaska again. Unfortunately it was a "QUICK" trip. The weather was beautiful for the most part. We did get a big rainstorm daily, but it lasted only 20-30 minutes, then the rest of the day was great. June 26 was summer soltice. The longest day of the year. While the daylight on the Kenai isn't quite as long as in Fairbanks, we did have long wonderful days. This photo, is a shot of the Russian Orthodox Church in Ninilchek, a Russian fishing village. Want to guess the time of day it was shot??? It was 10:30 PM. Yep, at night, can you believe that? :-) Even harder for me to believe was that we never got back to our rooms until almost midnight the entire time we were there. I wasn't tired then, but now that I am home, I am dragging anchor (tee hee). It is going to take me a couple of days to catch up here.
A friend of my son's just bought a boat and took us our Halibut fishing in Homer. Here we are headed out of port. What a treat that was for us all. The day was perfect and we found the best fishing spot in the world. Everyone caught their limits in just 45 minutes. It was exciting fishing for sure, as soon as the first pole was in the water we had a fish "on". I of course caught the babies. I know somewhere some mom is really mad at me, but the eating is going to be great. Mike (my son) was very happy with his catch, the largest of the day.
Even found some time to act like fools. My favorite past time. Here at the Pratt Museum, Ruth and I decided to play peeping toms. And look what we found peering back at us...Tyna!!! Notice the lack of Mike who was a little horrified at how his mother and her friends were behaving. It is always a good thing when you can embarrass your children for a change! :-)
Hope you have a good week, and get a chance to "peek" in on someone special yourselves!
