  1. Everything tastes better al fresco! Are you just going to the other house for the summer or a permanent move? Good luck in the marathon 🏃🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏃🏽‍♀️

    • Sadly, June 21 will be our final day at Chignik Lake. I’ll do some writing and posting about that in the near future. We are staying in Chignik Lake as long as we can, mainly to add to our bird photos. Our new home will be in Newhalen, on Lake Iliamna just above the top of the Alaska Peninsula. We’ll post maps and details soon… And thanks for the well-wishes on the running!

      • I looked it up when you first mentioned.. much bigger school for Barbra (is that even good?) but I feel sad not to be living vicariously at Chignik any more. Thank you both for making it come alive for me and countless others. By the way I was looking for ‘Four days of solitude at Black Lake..) but cannot find, did you remove? How’s the guitar going maestro in the making??

        • The school in Newhalen has an excellent reputation with a strong administrator, a good faculty and eager students. Since Barbra will teach a combined class of only three grades (4, 5 and 6) instead of all the grades, it will be easier work for her, which is good. But we will really miss Chignik Lake. We are leaving with a lot of good will and so we might get to visit during salmon and berry season in future years. In answer to your question about some of the older posts, now that I’m sending out articles for publication and am working on a book, I’ve taken material off the blog that might be too similar to some of that content. And the guitar… is going better than I had any right to expect. I’ll soon put in my 300th hour of practice. Just 200 to go to my initial goal of 500 hours. I’d play even more if I didn’t have all these other projects going on. Never thought I’d be so busy at this point in my life, but no complaints. It’s great to get up and get to work each morning. Thanks as always for coming along on our journeys. JD

        • Didn’t want to bother you again BUT just read up on the Lake I fishing! Wow! I can see you two smiling from here. (No reply necessary)
