We love having company! This summer we’ve had a few friends and family come through and have greatly enjoyed the time catching up, exploring, taking pictures. Here are a few pictures from the last few weeks. Or a lot. Brace yourselves!
We found theses bees sleeping while we were out on a walk. And we like bees!
Rex and Penny spent a few days of their grand Alaskan adventure with us, what a treat!
We went on a wheeled flight over the eastern end of the island. It was a perfectly calm evening, no turbulence at all!
Kodiak is beautiful! (This may be repeated in this post). And we appreciated Titus taking us up! (See picture below)
After a few days with Bernekings, we met Fred’s parents in Anchorage for a few days on the mainland. This is the Anchorage Rail Depot.
We rode the Alaska Railroad! To the Spencer Glacier whistle stop. It was a great day!
Outside Anchorage along the Turnagain Arm.
One of many glaciers we saw that day. This is a hanging glacier, named for the way it hangs from the top of the mountain.
The train took a side trip to Whittier on its way to the whistle stop, through the tunnel (which we now know is cool in a car and a train).
Spencer Glacier! And ice floes that have broken off of it.
Seward Sea Life Center is well worth the visit. And Seward is a pretty cute little town!
Surrounded by gorgeous mountains.
Quick stop in Homer, then back to Kodiak for the rest of their visit. Animals seen (not in the Sea Life Center) included: trumpeter swans, moose, bald eagles, belugas (!!!), sand hill cranes.
This time the mail run worked, so we got a float plane ride! On a beautiful day!
Can you see the bears?
And the some random shots that I enjoyed. Some days it rains. Some days the sun shines on everything the rain has touched and makes it glorious! Did I mention that Kodiak is beautiful?
