Omoigosh that play park looks amazing! My 4 year old is jealous of Baranof lol

We're stuck in port for a while waiting on a new autopilot thats being installed.

Meanwhile, we took Nessie for a walk through Totem Park https://www.nps.gov/sitk/index.htm



It was raining, but it usualy is here. That whole temperate rainforest thing  Cheesy



Indian River runs through the park. It will be FULL of spawning salmon soon



The trash cans around here are all bear resistant for good reason -



Then back to the boat. Hard to see but my son is holding Nessie up above his head for the photo-

We are getting ready to head out for the big King Salmon opener. Nessie helped tie gear-




Yesterday she found a possible relative at the library :-)



So jealous of all the people getting to meet other members in person this round

Aww, Baranof looks dashing in that tie Smiley

We took a couple days off and went up to Peril Strait to do some shrimping. We caught a few shrimp-



and one pot had a lot of half eaten shrimp and an octopus. We sorted him out into the bucket briefly for a few photos before setting him loose  Smiley



Then Nessie got to see one of Baranof's wild relatives. The ABC Brown Bear. We actually saw a ton of them, every time we pulled into a bay we scared off 2 or 3 bears. But it's really hard to get a photo that shows the bear well enough to tell what it is, AND see Nessie in the photo as well. So this was the best I could do. We saw a sow and three cubs while hiking. I wish I could have gotten a photo of Nessie and them, the cubs were so cute! But we got the heck out of there as soon as we saw them.

Beautiful! We rarely see those huge picture-perfect rainbows here.
Usually it's half rainbows.. but Nessie did get to see one

Hi everyone, just a reminder. The photos you take for the swap and the photos in this gallery are supposed to include the LV you are hosting Smiley

Here's our nature post. Nessie with one of my two all time favorite plants :-) Sundew! (Drosera rotundifolia) It's a little carnivorous plant that grows all over the boggy areas in Alaska.

Captain America! Awesome  Cheesy

So we headed out of town last night to anchor up and start fishing early today. Really early.. It's 3am so if I misspell anything forgive me.
I took a few photos on our way through..



The view of the Pioneer Home in downtown Sitka as we passed by.



Looking back at O'Connel bridge. When it was built in the 70's it was the first of its type built in the US. It connects Sitka to the airport  Smiley

I had some nice purchases this week... Baranof inspected them and liked them, I think. Wink

After months of playing Lego Harry Potter (years 1-4 only) I decided the girls are ready to get introduced to the Books. And that was of course the ONLY reason for me to buy the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Fantastic Beasts & Quidditch through the Years was on offer (2 for 7), and Beedle the Bard was just on the same shelf.. And the fact that I pre-ordered "The Cursed Child" has nothing to do with the fact that I'm a Potterhead... ummm... Wink

Awesome! I can't wait until kiddo is old enough for Harry Potter :-)

We have been recovering from a very long day of flying, delayed flights, and rough landings. But Nessie is now in Sitka Alaska! We head out fishing tonight so I'll post pics when we get back in in a few days.

Until then, considering all the Disney photos in the gallery I thought it was amusing which plane we flew to Alaska on -

Hi everyone!
So glad to see so much more activity in the gallery lately. This round seems especially creative, both in the photo taking and all the homemade LV's. It's awesome Smiley


PLEASE READ- if you have a problem with your partner, or anything else swap related from June 5th onward please be sure to send all messages to both myself AND our amazing co-organizer Mountains and Clouds. After the 5th I will be on a commercial fishing boat until September. So when I'm in port I will answer e-mails and post photos, but we will be out for a week to 10 days at a time so during those periods Mountains and Clouds will handle any issues. So CC'ing her in all messages will greatly speed up the response times and this way whichever of us is online at the time can deal with your concerns asap Smiley
