The Backwoods

Where we teeter between our love of modern convenience and the yearning for something long past; a world where neighbors knew your name and a “Friend Request” was eye contact and a smile.

Just Another Scenic Sunday 08-04-2013

They say you never really know your area until you have company…or at least that’s what it seems.  This past two weeks my oldest daughter, Heather, and her boyfriend, Andrew, have been visiting from Oregon. SO we are playing touristy and seeing the sites.  These pictures come from our ferry trip across from Homer to Seldovia, Alaska and also from a day on Tustumena Lake.

Tustumena lake is a 27 mile long glacier fed lake with VERY questionable weather changes with no notice. It can be smooth as glass one minute, then four foot swells the next, literally. We had smooth water all afternoon, made it all 27 miles up the lake in my dads boat, and back down the other edge for a full tour of the lake. Andrew kept saying, “I feel so lucky…” and indeed, he was.  We all were.
