My husband and I have a cabin there, as he also commercial dives in the fall for Sea Cucumbers, an Asian delicacy. Most of my family still lives in the area, so it's also a time for me to get to visit with my parents and siblings and reminisce about our crazy childhood! If you want to read some of those stories and learn more about what it is really like to live in the Alaskan Bush, check out my sister's blog www.alaskaforreal.com it is some of the best reading you will find on Alaska, and it's the "REAL" deal, she's lived that lifestyle for almost 40 years!
Here are some of the photos from the trip, one of the best parts about it were the over abundance of whales, they were everywhere! And I am completely and totally obsessed with whales, dolphins, and any and all sea life, they are all amazing creatures to me and I could just sit and watch them all day. The humpbacks were particularly busy this summer, bubble feeding everywhere, it is such an incredible sight. You can spot a very large ring of bubbles in the water moments before they rocket out of the water with their mouths wide open after having circled the small krill under the water and then filling their open mouths as they surge upwards, it's incredible!!
In this first picture you can clearly see the ring of bubbles near the shoreline, this is just moments before the whale burst out of the water.
