My niece, Misti, and her husband, David, moved to Sitka, Alaska where David is stationed with the Coast Guard.
Of course their darling little cutie pie, Carson, is there with them too.
As they were still settling in, Misti texted this photo to her mom and I usurped it for a blog post.
One day this week when my blogging creative juices were at an all time low, I REMEMBERED this photo, and knowing Misti's fun spirit, a blogging plot began to develop in my undersized brain.
I asked her, and she has consented, to send me Alaska "stuff" from time to time for us to "share" at The Eclectic Company.
From thenceforth she, Misti, will be know on these posts as The Klondike Gal Reporter.
Now, without further ado, here is the first Klondike Report:
An adventurous, red blooded male simply CANNOT live on a small Island in Alaska WITHOUT having a sturdy reliable fishing vessel by his side. Here is David's. With it he can catch more of these:
That's a king salmon. If you think it looks cold there, you would be right.
This is Mount Verstovia, which the Klondike Gal sees from her bedroom window, when the fishing vessel isn't blocking the view.
(I SO added that blocked view part in myself - - - I don't even know if the boat is parked anywhere NEAR the bedroom window.)
Oh for such a view!!!
A vista as viewed from the Harbor Mountain Trail.
One may not enjoy summer HEAT in Alaska, but the views are absolutely stunning and go a LONG way to making up for the cold.
Finally, this is Mendenhall Glacier.
Thank you, Klondike Gal Reporter, we do so look forward to our NEXT installment of your life and times in Alaska!!!
