Kaying, Paddle Board, Eagles in Meat Homer & Green Kodiak

Summer is here and I can;t keep up. Roads are full of cars now :( Before it got to crazy, I managed to go across the bay to kayak and visit Rick & Dorle. I needed the break after a crazy April work month.

 I slept in till 9:30 and did not think of woke as soon as I woke up! Before I was waking up at 5ish am but now I am more adjusted to our long daylight days. Still going to bed around midnight. Just too much to do.....

I also went paddle boarding in a new spot before Jim's worked picked up. I do enjoy it more than kayaking as it is more open and closer to nature. I even looked at prices but where the heck am I going to store that thing.

We had such a warm month and also a huge wildfires nearby going on 10 days now. 650 firefighters working on it and it's destroying a Wildlife Refuge Reserve. Click here if you wish to know more.

Memorial weekend I went to the King Crab Festival in beautiful Kodiak. Known for brown bears, fish and rain. Hope to go back in the fall via ferry!

April Homer & Kenai 2014

April has come and gone. Sun sets at 10pm and rises before 7am. Sleeping schedule is messed up and with the awesome spring, there's just too much fun to be had out there.

But its also my super busy time at work with a huge on-air fundraiser on May 2, a wine tasting fundrasier event and then our annual 2 day music festival in July

 I joke to people that I can't wait till winter when things slow down. Even winter is busy but now it's just super nuts with more cars on the road, more events, more sun and I just don't know how to do it all.

I was in Kenai (2 hrs North) for our sister station's (KDLL) on-air drive. It's way different vibe up there, more red-necky, if you will. But I made the most of it and visited there two breweries.

Then I was in Anchorage for a few nights got an Alaska public radio development conference. It's nice to see friends and explore outside of Homer but it is also nice to be back home.
