I've been working, painting, for the borough again. I've been fortunate to be out of town every week so far, so I'm racking up the per diem!! Sa weeet! the only down side is that it's been in a little village of MAYBE 150 people called Port Graham. Drive to Homer, fly across the bay for about 15 minutes, land on a dirt run way in the middle of some mountains and you're there! For some reason I didn't get any pictures of the school we're painting to show just how small it is, but here are some other tidbits from Port Graham.
The airport in Port Graham. Not even kidding. It's really strict, safety wise, out there. Security checkpoints, metal detectors, I.D. checkpoints...whew! or we just go to the airport in Homer, say we're here, and go hop on the plane!
A place called Windy Bay that our little crew got to after an 18.5 mile bumpy ride down an old logging road. So worth the trip though, it was soo sooo pretty!
I made this rice bag! Sewed it and all!
A pretty stream on our adventures down the logging road
Me and grams at the cemetary paying tribute to Gramps on Father's Day. He passed away 6 years ago to the day: June 20, 2004
My first flight out to work. My job rocks! We saw one bear right by the run way taking off about 2 weeks ago, and another bear out walking last week. Pretty cool stuff!
Jeremiah, Michelle and Ellah made a surprise trip back from Hawaii a couple weeks ago. Lame me, I didn't get a pic. with Michelle though. Just my cute niece, Ellah!
The lake behind the first school I was at this summer, Moose Pass. Yeah, I kayake on it!! Woot!
on our trip to valdez we got to go our 4-wheeling. I was lucky enough to get this SWEET helmet!!

Just a picture I really like that I took with my phone. No, it's not a sepia effect. it's called "the view looked cooler through my sunglasses, so I put them in front of the camera!"
After a fun treasure hunt out at Cohoe.
So there are a few pics I chose to display. I hope you're all having a wonderful summer and going on adventures like I am! Peace!
