Spring has finally shown its face on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula. The snow has finally stopped falling here, even though the Fairbanks area in the Interior, got an Easter surprise of two feet of the fluffy white stuff.
The leaves on our trees are beginning to bud out, Rocket our resident squirrel is out of hibernation, and the blue jays have returned to our feeders. We still have a lot of snow on the ground but it's finally beginning to melt with rivers of water running everywhere.
We are nearing the end of the writing for our new book. In the last blog we introduced you to our main characters, so this time we'll introduce you to the local where our story takes place.
Seldovia is a small Alaskan village located on the southern tip of the Kenai Peninsula, and is the main local of our story and the place most of our characters live. The only way to reach Seldovia is by air or by boat, and until the big earthquake of 1964, it was the only village to be mostly covered with boardwalks.
Portlock is an abandoned village south of Seldovia on the Gulf of Alaska. The village is said to have been deserted because of a hairy man creature and a pack of hairy devils that roamed the area.
Homer is located at the end of the Kenai Peninsula road system, and is now known as the halibut capital of the world. In the past however, Homer was known as the cosmic hamlet by the sea because of the numerous reports of UFO and other unexplained activities in the area.
We hope you all have a wonderful spring and summer season. Get out in the sun, play in the garden and go catch a fish or two!
