I made chupe de pescado. This is a South American dish, a type of fish chowder. I had it frequently in Chile, and later I had it often at a Peruvian restaurant in Newport Beach, California, when I was working... Continue reading

This morning, Juli and Keith left to return back to Portland. They took the ferry across to Ketchikan, which requires a very early departure from the house - 6 AM. Wayne drove them over there, and then went and did... Continue reading

It's not natural: the greenness of the waters; some algae bloom lurks. Continue reading

I sometimes daydream about treehouses. There are a lot of nice trees here. One could build a pretty awesome treehouse if one wanted to. Today was Juli and Keith's last day here. Wayne will stay longer, but Keith and Juli... Continue reading

There is a thing called "International Talk Like a Pirate Day" (ITLAP Day), on September 18th each year. It's not even a new thing - I remember hearing it discussed on the radio when I was still living and working... Continue reading

Kasaan is a native Haida village on the east side of Prince of Wales Island. Haida are the dominant tribe in southernmost southeast Alaska. Juli, Keith and I drove over there today while Wayne and Arthur went fishing. We walked... Continue reading

Sunny Hay is the most notable, highest mountain in the Craig area of west-central Prince of Wales Island. Actually, the name is Sunnahae, which is a native name. It's about 800m tall, and has a notable treeline near its top.... Continue reading

We hiked to the top of Sunny Hay which is the mountain behind Craig. The lower slopes were all logged, but higher, old trees grow, tangled with damp bogs until the ridge all treeless alpine grass. Continue reading

We had a busy day with our guests. In the morning, we went out fishing. The fish, however, chose not to participate. Here are three guests on the boat - Wayne, Keith, and Juli. Wayne is the person who originally... Continue reading

I had a rather busy day today. First, in the morning, I tried tromping up to the southeast corner of the lot. I didn't reach it - I got about two-thirds of the way, which would be about 50m. But... Continue reading

The sea tugs at the cool stones, the ebb tide takes sticks to ride, floating bones of trees, groans. Continue reading

Art's friend and sometime service provider Richard came out today with his backhoe to start work on digging the new driveway for the western parcel. This was the project that Arthur had initiated back in May when he was trying... Continue reading

The dream, being a dream, unfolded, leaving a twisted detritus of disconnected visions across the predawn's glow, until, looking up, I blinked to see - hovering - a pink cloud. Continue reading

EN EL PRINCIPIO Si he perdido la vida, el tiempo, todo lo que tiré, como un anillo, al agua, si he perdido la voz en la maleza, me queda la palabra. Si he sufrido la sed, el hambre, todo lo... Continue reading

We went out fishing this morning. Arthur caught one fish. In the afternoon, I went up the hill on what's becoming my daily trompabout. I still can't find the stake marking the southwest corner of the lot. Searching and sliding...... Continue reading

I went out tromping on the hillside again this morning. You'd be surprised to learn it's possible to get lost within 200 feet of the road - the brush is so thick, and the hillside is so steep and irregular.... Continue reading

I have been working, the last two mornings, at trying to find the southwest corner property line marker for Arthur's property. It requires tromping through brush, mud and rotting slash on very steep hillsides. So far I haven't found it.... Continue reading
