The new part of town developed down the highway a bit but people are sill around the old part of town.

The local flotilla ready to fish. This is just outside the harbor at old Ninilchik seen from our camp site at Deep Creek.

Thanks, Irene takes all the pictures, thousands of them. I just pick out a few and try to explain what is happening. Thanks again and I'm glad you enjoy them.

This is what I find interesting. They use these tractors to launch the boats.

You pull up, un-hitch your truck and go park it.

Down to the water and off you go. Irene didn't get the picture but the tractors wind up axle deep with the bottom of the frame submerged.

The beach is too steep and too soft for even 4 wheel drive. They line up about 4 boats wide on each side of the buildings and about 3 boats deep. Three tractors ran for at least the hour that I stood there launching boats. I am on the boat in the pictures so I don't know how long this goes on but this was the line as we were launched.

When the fishermen clean the fish they throw the carcasses at the edge of the sand and hundreds of sea gulls and dozens of bald eagles enjoy the feast. They say in the spring when the early salmon are in about 2000 eagles show up.Click image for larger version

She said the interesting thing was she could hear him rip and tear the carcass apart. It was quite fascinating to watch. Also he was keeping a sharp watch for anyone or anything who got too close to his meal.

Yes double mmmmmm mmmmmmm halibut. It was one of very few fishing trips that paid for itself. We stopped at a store in Seward and they wanted $24.95 a pound for fresh halibut.

We have run into several people who bought freezers to take fish home. One couple took the dinette out of their motorhome and put a freezer in for fish. Many pick ups towing trailers put one or two freezers in the truck bed for fish.

We just eat a lot of fish.

No internet for a few days.

Hi, Dan; We didn't have any internet for a few days. Today, while we are now a lot closer to you, have internet again. Great pictures Irene.

Does this mean you are back in Salem? Irene says "Thanks" and to say "Hi" to Lee Lee.
