Summer Wonders, Summer Projects

Our daughter Julia is up visiting for several days.  Her boyfriend, who has never been to Alaska, arrives tonight.

This afternoon Judy and Julia took the canoe out on Neklason Lake together for the first time in a while.  They were rewarded with the sight of our nesting pair of swans, together with their new brood of seven cygnets.  This is the first time Trumpeter swans have hatched their young on the lake since we've lived here.

Julia is helping me make a new set of floor boards for the Klamath.  We should have the skiff completely refurbished with its new motor in time to take a trip out to Shotgun Cove to hike up to the ridge overlooking Blackstone Bay.
