"A Life at Sea": My little photo essay in Alaska Magazine

Whew. Life in Kodiak, Alaska ramps up every summer: My husband Marty and I run an oceanfront B&B and host about 120 tours on our boat in the form of wildlife viewing/photo trips and gourmet dinner cruises. As the chief cook and bottle washer, I have great views for doing dishes). But I haven’t always cooked, scrubbed toilets, grown kale salads, and photographed for a living. I’ll show you what I mean…
The July/August issue of Alaska Magazine printed a photo essay of my work, showing the beauty that abounds on Kodiak Island. The photo essay, called “A Life at Sea,” is a play on words you see, because I once worked  as an Able-Bodied Seaman and later as a 3rd Mate (Merchant Marine Officer) aboard research ships and tugs. Even then, my camera helped me describe to friends and family back home what it was like to spend 6 to 8 months at sea. I hope you enjoy it as much as I loved taking the photos.
(To see the video I created about our close encounter with humpback whales, visit my post, From whales to plants, mid-summer feeding is a must).
