My kind of cool...

I was back in Alaska earlier this month; some changes have been made.

View from my Sunny Cove outhouse

Beginning this year the Alaska Marine Highway system added ferry service to Spruce Island.

New ferry dock in Ouzinkie

Ferry Tustumena, seen from Sunny Cove

It is my understanding that on alternate Fridays one can take a ferry to Kodiak in the morning, do some shopping, and return to Spruce Island in the evening.

Also, the route between Ouzinkie and Sunny Cove is being improved:


I was told that the project is scheduled for completion in 2014.

I'm looking forward to becoming a resident in 2016...

COOL! Or should I say COLD! Let me guess. This will be your summer place and Hawaii will be your winter place?

(:D) Best regards...

Excellent pics, my friend. I love how you can ponder the natural beauty of the area while attending to "the call of nature", as it were. LOL! ;-)

Seriously, I am happy for you that you have found such a place to make you happy...

Very nice, be safe. A friend from there, north of Nenana, was involved with a crash. Another car hit a moose and the two people in that car, not her's, died. It's a big problem I understand.

Hawkeye®:
Good guess. One of the educated variety, no doubt.

Bob G.:
You're quite welcome, my friend.

Bunny:
It is indeed the nicest outhouse view that I've ever seen...of course, most outhouses don't even have windows.

Beerme:
Enjoy it I do, thanks.

mmezalick:
No moose (just deer) on Spruce Island, although you are quite correct about collisions with them; it is one of the most common causes of animal-related fatalities in the U.S., in fact...

Yes, I've been making improvements to the homestead every time I go there.
