Here’s a few photos from our sea kayak trip in Prince William Sound.

Rain is the default setting in Prince William Sound.

So, a little sunshine went a long way.

I was fortunate to catch some salmon.

Which we cooked in the coals of a driftwood fire.

Mostly, it rained. But I still loved being out there!

We saw countless numbers of sea lions and bald eagles and otters but spoke with just one other party of kayakers during our ten day trip. And saw maybe three other groups of kayakers from a distance.
