So I Was Trying to Take Eagle Pictures . . . .




. . . . . . and this boat kept getting in the way . . . .
F/V Northwestern has made their Akutan deliveries and was in Dutch over the weekend doing exit interviews with the Discovery Channel crews. There were also interviews over at the Unisea plant dock involving lounge furniture from the hotel and the crew of the Cornelia Marie . . . . and now back to your normally scheduled blog programming of scenery, dogs, the odd pumpkin, eagles and horses . . . . . . .

You are the best Steve! Put a big smile on my face this morning! I am continuing to have internet depervation at home and can't get on the FVNW website, so this was a lovely surprise this morning. And yes, now back to the regularly scheduled blogging......

And In other Island News The Northwestern should be making a return trip on Wednesday for a scheduled offload in Dutch at Habor Crown Seafood.
Also Mountain View Coffee shop will be closing on November 22 For good, or until someone else buys this HUGE money making outlet.
Finally, Veda, of The Unalaska Advertiser (linked to in this blog) is on Vacation for two weeks so this is the last "police Beat" update till like the 7th of December.
And Steve, You always get better shots than me!!!!! ARRGGGHHHH!!!

Steve: "exit interviews" -- does that mean their season is wrapped up? Let's see, isn't King Crab season first, then Opelio? What are the lengths of those seasons, if you don't mind my asking, please?

Although I do not believe that this takes into account the Crab Rationalization Program.
Original Productions/Discovery will all be checking out of the Hotel by Sunday (Weather Permitting) and Flying back to LA LA Land. They and the boats will be back in Dutch on or before Jan 6for Opies. Just confirmed the Reservations with the production crew.

Hey Steve, I'd just like to say that I get a lot of comments from my visitors on how great your blog is. So kudos to you for keeping in touch with the world and yourself in such a place as Dutch. Most people outside of here know the island from all the DC blogs, not from the people who live here. Keep it up, we live in an amazing place that few will really ever know.

Carla! How have you been? Have you heard anything from Alex and crew lately?

BZ, the crab quota system versus the old style derby fishing is a whole conversation in inself, I'll email you direct, okay?

CB, thanks for dinner, see you on Thanksgiving!

Dan, I really appreciate your comment. This place speaks to me on a very primal level and it always amazes me how few people get out there and take advantage of all the island offers. You're leading the way, I hope to start diving maybe next year, that is a whole different side of the island to be explored. I love the photo on top of your blog with the tent, that sums you up very well!
