Where I'm at

This is my son's fishing lodge. My bedroom is on the lower left. Their living quarters are on the lower floor during the fishing season. The first guests of the season are arriving today and I leave tomorrow.
It is in Ninilchik, Alaska and sits on a bluff on the Cook inlet. The view is incredible as you see all the mountains across the inlet including two active volcanoes. They erupt occasionally disrupting all flights in and out of Alaska.. At this time of year the sky is full of eagles who feed on the low tides and at high tide soar in the air around the lodge... incredible for a bird lover like me... a sand hill crane landed on one of the cabins yesterday.
The guests actually sleep in lovely cottages and this is one pf the room on the main floor which are used for dining and socializing.... Each year they have a celebrity chef and the food is incredible... I used to come in the summers and do a lot of baking...not any more though...they are 18 hour days during season....
Max is the official lodge dog and is about 15 tears old and huge... I couldn't believe how gray he was this year.. I always think I'll never see him again when I leave. He is the most loving, gentle giant...

Oh, wow, what a beautiful place. I'm not a cold-weather person at all, but cold-weather clothing would be worth that view :).

This has got to be one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. What a blessing to get to go there and drink it all in.

What a beautiful lodge... I can certainly see why you visit (besides the son part of course)! Eighteen hour days on your feet would be pretty rough... better to just stitch and work your place. ;0)
