The Next Best Thing: Good Books About SE Alaskaby Elsie Hulsizer
Among the pleasures of being an author is getting to know other writers and learning the back stories of their books. One of the authors I've enjoyed meeting is Christine Smith, co-owner and operator of a small cruise ship and author of More Faster Backward: Rebuilding David B. I first met Christine and the David B. in Juneau and immediately decided that if we ever give up Osprey, I'll take a cruise on the David B. Then when I read her book, I was amazed by her story and awed by the task she and her husband Jeff undertook in rebuilding the boat. She had me laughing and crying with them as they struggled through the project.

We were returning from a chilly weekend of sailing to Poulsbo and Port Madison, when Steve spotted an owl on the land side of the Shilshole Breakwatrer, roughly opposite G dock. I thought immediately that it might be a snowy owl but wasn't sure as I had never actually seen one before.
