It's been a good season.



The wife and I have expanded our horizons this summer and ventured much farther from our home port of Seward, Alaska. We are lucky enough to have friends with over 30 years of experience living aboard and cruising the waters of southcentral Alaska to "show us the ropes" as we cut the apron strings and get out of our home waters. We have managed so far this season to spend nearly 30 days out of the harbor exploring the coves and bays of the Kenai Fjords area. We've motored serenely on flat water and reached at 9 knots in 25 knots and 4-footers.



We've had whales breach next to the boat, Orcas swim alongside the towed dinghy, Seals follow us along the shore and bears peek at us as we explored along the beach.



Places such as Northwestern Fjord and Tonsina Bay have taken our breath away. Northwestern was so spectacular we had to make a second trip with the in laws. Now names such as Chance Cove and Thunder Bay are more than just printing on a chart.

Doesn't seem fair to keep it all to ourselves, enjoy the photos.
