Winter Solace

This photo of my husband and son was taken last March at the lake on the back of the property.  While the weather getting to the island can be pretty dicey during the winter, peace reigns once there.

I’m sitting in my classroom relaxing for a few minutes during my lunch (1/2)  hour and I got a booking inquiry from AirBnB; someone in Kodiak is interested in an anniversary getaway.  This time of year the weather is cool (40s), but the wood-stove will keep you toasty warm.  A secluded island, long walks on the beach, wood-stove, oil lamps… How romantic is that!  Doesn’t that sound awesome?  It sure does to me.  I miss the peace and quiet there.

I Miss the Island!!


I made this picture my screen saver on my computer.  I imagine sitting in this lawn chair, drinking my coffee, and listening to the loons in the morning.  I miss the sound of the waves and the absence of mechanical sounds.  I miss the seclusion.  This place is so magical that you won’t only come here once.  I discovered it for the first time in June and I think about it every day.  Consider how you can make your Alaskan get-away dreams into a reality and reserve your cabin now.
