Heading down the road Friday morning. Misty sky, shimmering clouds.
Just leaving Homer Spit for the 45 min. trip to Halibut Cove.
The Danny J, a little ahead of us heading for the Cove.
Studio building of late, great Alaska artist Alex Combs, Halibut Cove.
It’s not just a slogan, it’s a lifestyle.
For part of Saturday and Sunday, I joined Michele as a volunteer helping build a playground. No time for photos, since it was a non-stop frenzy of activity. Pretty impressive considering the short fuse. I helped move around wood chip mulch the first day, and the second day was on a painting crew.
We went to a great little deck party on Sunday. Here is Michele with a bright blue cocktail.
I got up at 4 AM Memorial Day to go 40 miles up the road to Ninilchik for a fishing trip. The sun was already rising at 4:45.
It was cold and cloudy when we started out…
…but pretty soon it was sunny, and it stayed that way until we were ready to come back.
Trolling for kings was unsuccessful but we did catch a limit of small halibut, and quite a few cod as well.
Then it was back to the big town, to make more money to be able to travel and have fun again…
