2nd Annual Chocolate Extravaganza at the Museum

We attended the Chocolate Extravaganza at the Museum of the Aleutians on Friday night.  I don't have any pictures of anything chocolate because I kind of quickly moved past all that to the Karel Machalek Aleutian Soft Metal Exhibit - amazing!  You can see more pictures of the exhibit at the Museum Website.  Partway through the exhibit I was introduced to Sharon's husband Caleb and for the rest of the time there Caleb and I adjourned to the Main Gallery kayak exhibit area and talked about traditional Aleut kayak construction methods - what a great guy, so passionate about the subject and has obviously spent a lot of time thinking about and experimenting with kayak form and function, ever mindful of the Aleutian waves and weather.  If they hadn't dimmed the lights on us as a hint to leave, I would probably still be there picking his brain . . . . .

Thanks for coming to the Extravaganza! It was a lot of fun. And yummy. I'm glad Caleb had a chance to meet up with you and talk kayaks, or as we say in Unangam tunuu, iqyan (pl) or iqyax^. You and Goldfish are a lot of fun to be around.
