Alaska’s Travel Diary

Friday, 10 Aug 2012

Location: USA

MapLast night Dixie and Don had Gwynne, Dylan, and I over for spaghetti dinner and salad, w/ Dreyer's Pineapple cycle on a stick. We had a nice visit. They will have Gene & Alton over one night as well. We host Don, Dixie, Gene, and Alton tomorrow for lunch...stuffed pork chops and corn on the cob, rhubarb cake for dessert.
I think tomorrow I may rise later and take my chances fishing. Today we arrived at 4:00 a.m. to beat the crowd. We did. It was shortly after 4 Frenchmen joined Alton and I. I fished in the dark only to hold my spot. I did not have any strikes today, so came home fishless. Alton fished another spot and was victorious....bringing home two...Gene yet another spot with fish to show too. The Frenchmen showed me up least the one fishing next to me. He had one on and caught two. Other than that, no one else had anything to show by the time I left.
We at Halibut Olympia at the S.C. today, joined by Don, Dixie, Gene, and Alton. Dylan played Angry Bird on Gwynne's iPad as we all ate. Gwynne tagged along to help Gene do his Meals on Wheels duty. She has taken pictures to share. Dylan and I went to a garage sale and went around town taking pictures. When we returned, Dylan got a ride in the 4-wheeler with Don driving since he'd been a good boy for some time.
Today is a dreary day. If it is raining tonight and in the morning, I may change my mind on fishing altogether. (Jennifer)
