Kachemak Bay

This was taken with one of those fancy cameras and then the pictures were stitched together. It is from the overlook of Kachemak Bay.

Ditches Revealed

Our snow is melting fast, and telling stories of the winter as it reveals things not seen in many months. This is the ditch in front of a house where a couple of boys live. You can see the progression of their sports through the seasons. A baseball bat and soccer ball lie next to a sled and other toys.

Soccer in the Sand

How many places can you go and see soccer practice on the beach in a setting like this?

Camera Competition

Let the camera competition begin! I was told by Grandpa that he now has a better camera than the one his wife has (see yesterday's post). Here's the proof.

The Camera Grows

Remember this? Well, Grandma and her huge camera lens made it on the front page of a newspaper with this photo. I noticed that her camera lens had grown.

Forward-Leaning Snowman

This is what we found standing on the platform out in the middle of Mud Bay. I believe Rumsfeld would call this a forward-leaning snowman.

Mystery Island

This is a picture of Mud Bay. You can see the huge ice chunks that are still hanging around. Way out there in the middle of the tide zone is a platform and we noticed that there was something red and white on it. Can you see it in this photo? We couldn't figure out what it was so one of us, not me, walked out on the ice to find out. I'll show you tomorrow. Years ago someone had stationed a recliner and a TV out there. It is a humorous spot.

Seafarer's Memorial

After abandoning our parking spot in the eagle feeding area we decided to park at the Seafarer's Memorial. It is a beautiful memorial to all those who have died at sea from this area. Their names are inscirbed on plaques with dates and sometimes a picture.

Marathon Season Is Here

I have begun training for my 11th marathon, which takes place in June. This was my first outdoor run, and it was snot-bubble cold. I started my run at the Spit, which is about 4 miles long. At first I was going to park here, but you can see by the sign that they don't want the eagles disturbed. So I drove past all the people who were walking amongst the eagles and parked up the road a little bit. The eagles didn't seem to mind one way or another.

Who's Thrown a Snowball?

This is a graph showing that 100% of the students in the K-2 class at my school have thrown a snowball. A class of 2nd graders who call each day for our weather did their own snowball graph, which you can see in the photo. Their poll had a different result. Notice the creative snowman on the right. If we aren't building them outdoors, we are building them inside.
