  1. Barbra,
    Goodness sakes, you live quite the life! What a wonderful writer and photographer you are too, amazing. Ahhh, and your recipes. I started back up with FC thanks to your inspiration. Gourmet living in the remote regions of Alaska. I love it!
    I need to pay more attention to what you having going on. I love how you respect the beauty and magic of where you are.

      • Do you mean the ice solidifies and goes solid so you can walk out on it ? Interesting ! Have you read the Kings Island Journal by Juan and Rie Munoz , 1951-52 , teachers on a Bering Sea island ? I have a copy and enjoyed it tremendously !

  2. I am a recent follower of your blog. I saw youir article in the September Alaska magazine so am enjoying reading all your stories. I live in western Michigan and are influenced by the wind blowing snow inland across the big lake so I have some experience with winter weather and snow. I especially enjoy your photos. We are retired now living in a small 850 sf apartment in a retirement community. Cozy and warm. Over the years we camped in smalll trailers and eventually had a 23ft motorhome so I appreciate your comments about living in a small space. One tiime I built a wood kayak and also owned a folding kayak so I also relate to the sail boats.


    • Hi Jim, Thanks for finding us and reading and commenting. Barbra and I talk constantly about what our retirement might look like. As we become more and more accustomed to living in small spaces, it seems to open up more and more possibilities. It’s interesting how “way leads to way” in life. We both really enjoy kayaking, but don’t get to do much of it these days. Hope all is well in Michigan! Jack
