I can't complain though. While they were here we managed to do more in two weeks then we've done around here for a while. The first weekend that Dave got here we showed him around the island and managed to take him out hiking. On our way out to go hiking we even managed to find him a Kodiak bear for his photo album. A nice large "blondie" (lighter colored bears) was standing in the middle of the road on our way to the hike. Talk about a surprised Becca as she came around the corner. Once we got brave, we pulled up and tried to get pictures of him in the woods. Here is the best picture we could get.
After the bear incident we went hiking a little ways further down the road and here are some of the pictures from that.
Later in the week my Dad got on island and we showed him what Kodiak has to offer. Luckily the Kodiak Crabfest was going on and we were able to partake, and get lunch there everyday. You just can't beat meat on a stick, along with bruin burgers and brats. Besides food their were some booths, shows and the best part was the bed races. Yup, lots of excitement here in Kodiak during crabfest.
In between hiking and eating, we put Dad to work and he helped me change out some lighting in the house, and the project he didn't know about prior to getting here; building a deck! I had already planned out the deck and had the lumber delivered, but he was a great second set of hands for the job. We even put Dave to work later in the week. By the time Dad left we had the actual deck compelte minus the rails and balusters. I finished that later in the week after Dad left and Becca was in China. Here are some more pictures of our two weeks of sun, hope you enjoy. Becca will be posting more later from her adventures in China.
