…the experience was so big, so damn big, that even now, 6 months later, I find it difficult to bring it into focus. Alaska itself, immense, unforgiving, and yet nourishing in its ability to sustain life with an abundance of fish, berries, mussels, clams, and shrimp, seemed to me like the Old Testament deity …
We have officially arrived in Homer! The summer was amazing. We spent three weeks this spring working on Bluewater. We removed her ceiling liner and insulation to paint the underside of the cabin with a mixture of super-toxic 2-part epoxy paint and microbeads. The microbeads are super-tiny hollow glass spheres that add just enough R-value […]

Here is a different look at the toe of the Tiger Glacier from last month. Lots of thanks to the panorama master Al Sharp for stitching this together and making it work. GO PAPA GO! To appreciate the scale, look for Susanna standing on a boulder along the shore. Click and drag to pan | […]
Termination Dust above Seward – Photo by Michael Sharp Alaskan lore says that termination dust “the first significant dusting of snow on the higher peaks” predicts the onset of winter in six weeks. The clock is ticking. We woke a few days ago to a heavy dusting just above Seward. The next day the first […]
We have just arrived in Seward, Alaska on the Kenai Peninsula and are getting ready to head into Kenai Fjords National Park. There are a thousand new stories to tell and a thousand new ideas to share. While we resupply and refuel I thought you might like to see some pictures. So check out the […]
