Great day fishing, but also got to visit and photograph a sea lion rookery I’ve never been to before! This guy was all about soaking up the sun ☀️
I’m sorry I’ve been off IG for a bit. We were on vacation, then prepping for back to school.
Today we took the kids off on an adventure.
Tomorrow is church.
Monday, I’m back to game on.
How was your end of summer?

What we will be doing after all the weekend adventures.
Searching for sunlight ☀️
Early mornings in the port before all the fishing madness begins!
Such a beautiful place 🧡💛💚💙
Still wishing I could go back to this moment a month ago.
The incredibly talented @stevegordonartist
came to visit and this is one of four pieces he created of the landscape surrounding Tutka Bay Lodge. Oil on panel. $4000, includes domestic shipping.
Enjoy your weekend everyone.
Good days are made of kayaking, portaging, making sea star friends, eating snickerdoodles on the beach, and friends playing ukulele tunes.
Oh, hey instagram, it’s been a while. This summer has been amazing. Amazingly beautiful and intense and wonderful and challenging all at the same time. It feels simultaneously like it’s gone by in the blink of an eye and also that we’ve been here for years and years. I’m fortunate to be surrounded by some of the best, hardest working, most talented people I’ve ever met. I wouldn't be here without them. There’s not another time in my life that I’ve felt so completely present and committed to a place as I have each day here. I’m sorry I‘ve totally neglected remaining in touch with any of you. Everything is good. It’s great even, and there’s still just over a month left...
I took this photo of these two curious Brown Bear cubs in Kukak Bay in Katmai NP in Alaska.
My favorite color in the world is the color of glacial ice and water. .
The majesty of the glacier was astounding. We got so close to the Dawes Glacier that we could feel the rush of cold air as pieces fell. While this was amazing, the receding glacier was a stark reminder that while I was lucky enough to see it, this and other glaciers like it may be gone soon. Alaska was a beautiful show of nature, and reminded me why it's so important to look after our environment...
All the best to those out on the water participating in The Golden North Salmon Derby! Also, Trade secret is to rub your herring over a slice of Alaskan fudge, the 🐟 go 😜 for it 😉🎣
Where are the fairies?
💀 I was telling Vera about how I acquired all the sea life hanging from my waist, I got caught in a fishing net and dragged along the seafloor until the Captain pulled me up and gave me his hat cos he was so impressed that I survived and I was the most badass women pirate he ever knew ;) #pirateparty
bloodys are better with salmon 🐟
going blueberry picking with my humans actually means chasing rabbits + watching (not chasing!🙌🏼) the moose down below...
Dew you see it’s wings?
Sunrise in the Mountains! What a morning!
Twists and turns down the Muddy river. Two summers ago I took a canoe from Lake Minchumina, the largest lake in interior Alaska you’ve never heard of, to Manley down this river, the Kantishna, and the Tanana. Most of the river is this curvy and if you stretched it out it would cross at least twice the distance. Maps show you a lot but it really gives you some perspective when you see it from above. #whoneedsadrone
Midnight sun dance party on the Matanuska Glacier. Getting so stoked to go back to the Mat this fall - it’s the first place in Alaska I’ve found where my spirit feels content .... where’s the last unexpected place you felt at peace? ❄️ #Skidavida #heralaskalife
