Sights of Kodiak

This last weekend I had the pleasure of traveling to Kodiak to hang out with my mother-in-law who was there on business. I had so much fun learning all about the island where Peter and his family are from.

I know that this is not the best picture ever but, oh well, what can I say, I am still learning! City of Kodiak is to the left, all along the water. If you look really close, towards the middle of the picture, you can see a bridge connecting it to another island.

I met these guys coming into town. The big guy wanted me to run away with him. I told him that I was married but he was very persistent! I thought I was gonna have to call the hubs to come down and protect me.

This was taken from Ft. Abercrombie, which is now a park, but it was a fort during WWII.
Taken from the beach where Debbie and I were beachcombing.

Bunkers are everywhere! I even saw them on a few tiny islands when flying into Kodiak. They are the remnants of WWII.

This was one of the Salmonberries that found it's way into my belly! They look like a yellow to orange-red raspberry, but only larger and bigger seeds. Tart yummy goodness!

This is the church were Peter's mom and step dad were married and were his grandparents were married.

Deb, I was not bored, not one bit! I have such an interest in family history and enjoyed all the stories and places you shared with me. Thank you so much! I hope we can do it again next year but more berries!
