With a cloudy day, there is always a possibility for dramatic lighting, and today proved that true. From early this morning, and the time we arrived home, the clouds, sun on the water and flowers, areas of rain behind and in front of the mountains of Kachemak Bay made for some amazing lighting. Some of the images I captured are included.

We topped 600 guests, as bear viewing and many fishing trips were postponed with the windy weather. Folks were scrambling to find indoor activities, and the exhibits at our Visitor’s Center are informative, interactive, and lots of fun. Many children became Junior Rangers today, and the Discovery Lab had more guests than any day this year.

Dinner was kielbasa on the grill with veggies/pasta/alfredo and jello. It is a great evening for a video and we are watching the mystery of the disappearance of the Steller Sea Lions – their population here in Alaska waters is down 80% in the past few years.
