Yesterday we finally (after much delay and weather hold) made it back to Sand Point. After not really seeing the sun for a few weeks, it was amazing to burst through the clouds in our little plane and be blinded by the light. Sand Point has been enjoying a sunny streak, and the sailor’s saying of a red sky last night held true for us today.
We went on a walk down to Sand Dollar beach last night and it was just so spectacular that I was at a loss for words to describe it. Today is just as nice, so I think we’re going to do some hiking/walking/four-wheeling/etc. before going down to the docks to sample tonight. My last sampling before heading off to Kodiak on the ferry tomorrow! It’s been such an amazing summer out here. I’m pretty sure that if the right job opens up out here next summer, I’ll be the first person gunning to apply.
Getting back yesterday took some adjusting with smaller and darker living quarters and a lot more people than just Rose and I. It was definitely wonderful to see Lisa and Bri again though, and this morning we had a breakfast of champions! Blueberry sourdough pancakes, pineapple, blackberries, homemade applesauce, and sugared strawberries. So delicious! Life sometimes just gets too darn good. I’m hoping tonight to top everything off by seeing some of the friends I’ve made here in Sand Point, and then re-pack to head out tomorrow.
