Animal Day!

I often plan on updating the blog with things, like our vacation with Fred’s parents in Hawaii, or our short individual visits to our families after the death of Fred’s grandpa and my grandma the last few months. I plan on it, frame it in my mind, and don’t do it. Either I get distracted, or lack the motivation to actually do anything, to communicate, is that still depression? I think it is still there. But we are getting better, both of us. We are on a more compatible work schedule, that is helping a lot. There are still challenges, things at work, at church, in life, but we’re getting better. And some days are very good, like Tuesday!

Tuesday was beautiful and we were both not only off work, but awake! So we had a breakfast date and went for a drive out the road (Anton Larsen Road, if you’re following on a map). It’s mostly dirt, going off west-ish of town. And it was a gorgeous day.


At the bay at the end of the road there were several sea otters playing, too far out for my puny zoom to pick up well, but if you know that the blips in the water are otters, then you can see them!

After playing peekaboo with a seal on the way back, we stopped at the Buskin bridge and admired a mother bear and her two cubs!  Our second bear sighting in Kodiak, our first close enough to really tell in pictures!
