Kenai Edge

The mouth of the Kenai River

The picnic table only has bench seats on the safe side.

Erosion, earthquake or shakey legs...I wasn't getting close to the edge. Nice view from a little out of the way park I found in Old Town Kenai.

8 More

Sunsets at the lodge that is. Time is getting short for me. The season is winding down to a halt soon. Luckily I have a lot to do so the time should go by fast & then slow down while I get ready for winter. HaHa I Wish!

Snapping Ray Troll T-shirts

Stopped by Snug Harbor Seafoods today to pick up my smoked silver salmon and got carried away snapping pictures of the Ray Troll T-shirts. Every one of them is fantastic! Very good point.

Kind of out there.

The ugly truth.

Good book.

Fast fish!



My favorite.

Home 4 Life

Here is the new business card of the company who are the brawns & brains behind my new abode. 
Thank-you Home 4 Life for giving me the inspiration and know-how to have my own place again.  I might not own the spot its on but with your design features it is movable.   

My own space!  I can't wait!  Groundbreaking was today.

Little Red Cooler

Had a great time on my roadtrip week vacation. The weather was sunny most of the time with the fall colors changing fast. Lots of campfires, roasted hotdogs and s'mores.

Came back with exciting news and solid plans for the winter. I changed my mind about the Hawaiian Islands and opted for joining my sister's Home For Life program and building a model gertee. Hired a carpenter, rented an awesome space in an RV park with water, sewer & electric hookups so this will be a modern gertee ( a cross between a yurt & a teepee).

So back to work tomorrow to finish out the season and look forward to winter near family in my own warm & cosy humble abode.

And my little red cooler came back empty. Ready to be filled up again!

One Last Breakfast

After 88 days in a row cooking breakfast & making lunches and all the other things a lodge momma does I HAVE A WEEK OFF!!!

A week to go to the valley to visit family & friends!

The job isn't over til the end of the month tho. The last guests left this morning and a group is coming in the 18th so I need to get a jump on that. Plus we are already improving for next year. And I want to wrap the lodge up since I will be the one unwrapping.

I am looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow. Then taking a leisurely road trip off the Kenai with frozen halibut, sockeye and cohos on board.

Come along for the ride!

Dave's killer Bread

Just say NO to bread on drugs!
All summer long I've been making the fisherman's sack lunch sandwiches with Dave's killer Bread. It costs a little more than 6 bucks a loaf but well worth the price when everyone raved about my killer sandwiches. You can't go wrong with killer sandwich bread to begin with.

His story makes for good table talk, too. Above is a picture I took right off the back of the loaf. There is website you can learn more about Dave's killer Bread and order it on-line if you are not lucky enough to have it for sale in a store near you.

Also, Dave's killer bread makes KILLER toast with marionberry jelly!
