This post if for my wonderful sister in Idaho, whom I love and miss very much - great to talk to you last night! These are the "wild" horses of Summers Bay - I saw them when I visited Dutch Harbor a few years ago, before I moved here, but I have not seen them until this evening when Goldfish and I headed out to do some beach combing at Humpy Cove. I think a woman wrote a children's book about them back in the 90's, I saw a copy over at the museum bookstore. Anyways, they are beautiful and very friendly and I shared my apple with them so they wouldn't climb into the passenger seat with me.
The crab fleet is definitely in town - Latitudes (formerly the Elbow Room, and soon to be closed forever) is packed tonight with fishermen and crab groupies. The Cornelia Marie went by the plant this afternoon and on the way to Summers Bay we could see a helicopter buzzing over some crab boats about a mile offshore, so I'd say the Deadliest Catch film crew is here and filming. There was some more termination dust on the mountains today but it was a nice sunny 46 degrees down by the water. Cheers!
