A Wonderful Week in Homer, Alaska

  • After a little more than a week relaxing with the folks in Homer, we left Alaska for the summer this evening. The weather was incredible so it was hard to break away. Last night we went camping across the bay from Homer and we boarded our plane today smelling of campfire smoke. It was a wonderful break after fishing with lots of berry picking, fish catching and eating, cooking, and relaxing time spent with family.

    We have been making salmon dog treats all summer with the bits left when we fillet salmon. Toby, for one, really likes them.

    Gordon and I chopped 4 cords of firewood for the winter. This is about 10% of what we felled, bucked, chopped and stacked.
