the Albatross

This old skiff sits outside the Albatross Restaurant & Lounge near Mile 13 of Kalifornsky Beach Road. It no longer is a restaurant though the lounge is still open and so is the package liquor store. When Pat, the owner, husband died 9 years ago, she couldn't do it all. He was quite the cook and a popular all around guy. Pat is a nurse and while at the bar takes good care of her loyal customers. In more ways than spirits.

When she was younger she would plant flowers in the coffee pots of the skiff.

When I googled albatross alaska I found this cool site: NOAA Photo Library Old pictures of Alaska at the turn of the 19th century.
