Gone lame

Admittedly, the blog has grown cold as we settle into our new world in Sitka. We're very glad to have kept this going for our two year journey from Seattle to Alaska. It will always serve as a reminder to us of an amazing adventure and an incredible time in our lives. Thank you to everyone who read it.

Knowing there were supportive and encouraging friends and family checking in kept it fun for us. We may do a Sitka blog some day - it's an amazing place - that's for sure, but we don't seem to have as much time as we did... Funny that.

All our best to you all, and please keep in touch.

Fall Update

As fall turns slowly to winter we're snug in Oystercatcher bobbing around at the dock. Mornings and evenings are dark and often rainy. A wet splash to work for Blain, he is often accompanied by Mo and Chance for the morning walk.

Mo typically heads to the pool or library, or helps out as a volunteer around town. There is something fun going on in this town every day.

Blain knocked on the door at Sitka Trail Works one morning and walked out with a job beginning the next. He works on trails, drives a big green truck, and smiles alot.

We've really been welcomed to the community, to dinners and events, to hikes and evening drinks. We are wondering if we're home.
