For New Blog Readers;

Posted 03-07-2012 at 03:29 PM by Hardyreels

Whenever I visit the blog I see some new names recorded in the 'recent visitors' information. I often wonder how well the new folks understand how these pages are recorded or 'stacked' here. I'll be the first to admit that it took me a while to figure things out for myself. There are stories that are posted many pages deep in this section that you may find interesting or amusing and i always wonder if people are paging back through the writings. Comments are the most valuable tool for me to gage how often the pages are read and it is those comments that draw more tales out of me and onto the pages here.

We did take the boat down to Kenai and leave it with the builders at ATEC Marine for a motor upgrade and then went on to Homer where we stayed over night. While there we were able to walk along the beach and see many sights that we hadn't visited since last year. I was able to meet one of the forums Alaska members while I was down there and we have a steelhead trip in the works already so it was a good trip all around.

Here are a couple images from the trip.

At one bluff along the drive home we witnessed 20 eagles soaring together on the rising warm air currents. It was not possible to get them all on one frame but this will give you an idea of what it was like to see them

These were another couple stops along the way.

A snowed in overlook above Kachemac Bay, yes that is an eagle in the shot. They are everywhere along the open water at this time.

And these taken out the window of the truck as we drove for home in the Valley.

I took many more pictures but these I believe give the general overtone of the trip. Springs right around the corner so things will liven up on these pages soon

    Joe has finally had to leave Skwentna and is living in Anchorage at this time. His health became an issue and he left last fall. I will look him up in town next week because I have a trip to Anchorage on the list. I'll tell him that a friend from AU. has inquired after him.
