Pictures for July 23

Back to the land of wireless. Yippee!

Old Russian Orthodox Church in the town of Kenai

A hundred+ year old cabin, now falling down, but the caretakers of the historic district have it nicely dressed up with flowers

How could I have forgotten the salmon fishers? It is dip net season for the silver salmon at the mouth of the Kenai River, and there were enough boats to cross the river without getting your feet wet. Poor salmon!

And then if they get past the dip netters, they face a phalanx of line fishers just where the salmon like to rest from the current.

The coast just off Capt Cook campground. These rocks are the size of school buses and were dropped here by a retreating glacier 20,000 years ago. We saw splashes from waves against rocks very far out into the bay, so navigation here is very dicey!
