Hiking in Kodiak

The three of us have enjoyed the sunshine in the past week. The rain eased up just before the Christmas holiday, and we have had a good time taking in the sea smoke, snow covered mountains, and sea lions. Our local stellar sea lions sun themselves on a platform within St. Herman's harbor. Their calls can be heard from certain vantage points along some of the trails on Near Island, but they are best seen and smelled at the edge of the large floats that house some of the area's largest trollers.

While standing there, I could not help but be mesmerized by Barometer's reflection in the water.
My poor attempt to be artistic...
I just love the name of this boat.
A floatplane heading out.

And lastly, here is a shot of the sunrise last Wednesday, 24 Dec. As I drove home from Rotary and a couple of stops to wish clients happy holidays, I took a short cut along Mission Road, where I saw the crescent moon in the morning hues.
