Kathy/SUN...and then rain!
Mary and Ray Couvillion came to visit and brought the sunshine. It was a fun-filled 4 days of fishing (but only a few instances of 'catching'), sailing, gunkholing, whale watching (humpies and orcas), dining lavishly from the one caught fish and playing Rummikub...again and again and again! Revisiting Thumb, Humpy and Bulldog Coves under clear skies was a novel experience for us, as well as for the hordes of other boaters from the Seward Small Boat Harbor who found their way into the Resurrection Bay anchorages to enjoy the beautiful weather. Obviously this is a Vitamin D starved population! Paul Rupple ("Sundance") and friend, Pat joined us in Bulldog Cove for an evening of Couvillion's contribution of the 1987 edition of "Trivialaska." It was indeed challenging for ALL to correctly answer questions of Alaska's 'ancient history', but Maker's Mark and red wine ameliorated the stressful urgency factor and a good time was had by all. Thanks for coming and providing this entertaining game, Mary and Ray. The sail back into Seward on Sunday afternoon was reminiscent of the Oklahoma Land Rush with watercraft visible as far as the eye could see coming back from a pleasant week-end in Resurrection Bay. This was indeed a rare and unusual sighting for us who have never experienced Seward during their mid-summer (SUNNY!) boating/fishing season. We made it back just as the 3-day spate of rainy, foggy inclement weather set in. Anyone for more Rummikub??
