Sunday Brunch, Amazing food, Junior Haircut, Deadliest Catch Boat Update, City Council and Bunker Hill walk! Whew! What a Week!

Welcome to another Sunday Brunch At the Grand Aleutian in Dutch Harbor/Unalaska. As you can see, the other member of your Party, Mr Eagle, is already here waiting for you.
Let's just scoot around Paul from back at Halloween since he did not want to stand still today to take a picture.........

The snow is returning to the island, thankfully there is alot of great food to fill our tummies on such a cold day!

Lets start out with some Huevos Benedictos Latina with Corn Sopes, Chorizo Hollandaise Sauce, Ham, Chipotle and poached eggs.

If not, Chefboy and Eddie would love to make you up an omlette or waffle.

Now, a beautifully crafted Dish. Alaskan Halibut with Horseradish Cream, wasabi-beet Drizzle, and Crushed olives.

It's so good looking that the eagles have set up a permanent vigil on the lamp posts outside!

Rich really outdid himself on the food today. This dish is amazing. Seared Pork belly over noodles with a wonderful sauce that was spicy/sweet finished off with fresh mango, mint and cillantro. Amazing. Easily one of the best things I have eaten on the island, and just visually striking.

Hey Junior!! Where are the smoothies?!?!?!?

Is the new haircut slowing you down?

No matter. The desserts look amazing and that is what we really want.........

First a welcome back to Alaska Steve! The island was not the same without you. Here is your favorite Tug Hard at work out by the City dock.

It was pushing a large cargo freighter up to the Dock, Right behind the Farwest Leader. (Why they ever took the FL off DC I will never know. I really liked that boat)

The Aquila is the new Chase boat for DC, so I thought I would include a few shots.

I am happy to Report that all the DC boats have now left the Harbor. The Cornelia Marie Departed late yesterday evening. It will proably be a few weeks till we see any of them again as they are scheduled to do offloads up in Saint Paul before that harbor freezes up. Good luck Guys!

The Mighty Wizard. Kinda fun seeing them away from the Westward dock which is so high that you have to cross at the wheelhouse, instead of dock to deck.

They were shooting down on the TB so I did not want to get too close and mess up anything.

Caught a few good shots of an Eagle on the Wizard on my way back to the truck.

The Cornelia Marie down at the Delta Western Dock after their brief trip to Magones for drydock.

And Finally The Northwestern from a few days ago. Did not get them at the same time as the rest because they were away from the dock filming too when I was out that Way. For everyone who asks Jake seems to be doing as well as can be expected. I was asked to NOT put up anything on the blog about his dad. The Kid has alot going on right now and having everyone asking him his business is not helping. His family needs the money, so he needs to fish. That is the last I am going to say on the subject.

So It has been a busy week for me. Between a Full hotel, City Council meetings Including the wonderful Katherine , our amazing mayor and those Bad Boys of City Council.......

.........CVB meetings including Miss N right there in the middle texting at a city council meeting...LOL...........

....And showing Kyle around the island a bit.

Even though it was bit wet we still made the short climb up on arch rock, (Which still to me looks like a lion in the upper right portion)

Yeah Kyle, it was a bit breezy, Just wait till this week on Monday and Tuesday with the up to 75mph gusts!

One good thing about Strong gusty winds is they turn up some nice large pieces of Beach Glass!

Hopefully this week will not be as busy and I can blog a bit more for you all........not looking good though..........LOL. Oh well, at least I am never bored!

Akutan's April Dawn said...

so when I rode over to Dutch from here in the FWL I was BS-ing with Greg and asked how come the FWL isn't on the show... I guess he got tired of them trying to make him argue with his wife and be an a$$hole to the crew. And from what I am guessing it sounded like the camera crew was in his way... He likes the show and all.. just didn't want to put up with any BS to make the show look that much better. You know what I mean? I understand him on that part. Hell I thought he was an ass from how he was portrayed on the show, but in real life Greg is an awesome guy who is just doing what he's been doing for the last 25 years!!

Food looked great!! Wish this weather wasn't so bad so I can get some grapes... LOL... :P

Dont' work too hard over there now! Take care, keep in touch and much luv!! <3

Shoes specially made for losing weight are available today and [B][URL=]footwear etc[/URL][/B] can be quite effective. These shoes have been out for a while and some companies have risen to the top [B]mbt sneakers[/B] demonstrated that they can provide a quality product to consumers. One [U]MBT shoes[/U] such type of these shoes is the MBT Shoe made by a company called Swiss Masai. In case you [U][B]discount mbt shoes[/U][/B] did not MBT stands for Masai Barefoot Technology. In this write up we want to take a [U]MBT shoes[/U] closer look at these special shoes.

The development and idea behind the MBT shoe design is quite [U][B]buy mbt shoes[/U][/B] interesting. What the shoe attempts to do is structure the shape of the shoe so [U]mbt walking shoes[/U] that it simulates walking on sand. Specifically, the they want to attempt to make it as if you are walking [U]mbt shoes best prices[/U] along the natural sand environment of the Masai in Kenya. Sports trainers have known for quite a while now [U]mbt shoes sale[/U] that working out on dry sand is a great way to get in excellent cardiovascular condition. As you [U]discount mbt shoes[/U] walk on sand it creates an uneven surface on your feet and it forces you to shift your center of gravity to [U]buy mbt shoes[/U] an unnatural position. Your body compensates for this by using several different [B]mbt shoes review[/B] muscle groups in your feet, calves, thighs, and torso that you would not use wearing typical shoes. This is the ideas [U]mbt sneakers[/U] behind the MBT weight loss shoes and it does seem to [B][URL=]mbt shoes clearance[/URL][/B] work for some people.

More specifically, MBT makes several positive claims [U]MBT[/U] and benefits from wearing their shoes. They will take muscle groups [U][B]mbt sandals[/U][/B] not normally used in walking and make them active. The shoes will give you a better posture, and a more effective [U][B]mbt shoes best prices[/U][/B] gait when walking with or without the shoes. It can [B]mbt shoes best prices[/B] potentially help you with problems you may have with your back, hips, legs, and feet. The [U][B]mbt shoes review[/U][/B] shoes can help you recover from injuries to your [B]discount mbt shoes[/B] tendons, joints, ligaments, or muscles. The shoes are also designed to alleviate tension and stress [U]mbt shoes best prices[/U] on your lower joints.

Overall owners of the MBT shoe really like the results. [B]mbt sneakers[/B] It is typical that if you walk for three or four miles at a time for several times [U][B]mbt discount shoes[/U][/B] per week you will experience some weight loss. Some people are using them for every day [U]mbt sandals[/U] use and find that this helps to keep their legs toned and looking nice. These are just walking [U][B]discount mbt shoes[/U][/B] shoes you really do not want to use them for running. It is recommended that you go to a store and try them on, as you [B]mbt shoes review[/B] want to make sure the heel is snug and fits correctly. If the shoes fit correctly they should feel snug and it should [B]footwear etc[/B] feel as though you are walking on stilts when you walk in [U]mbt shoes sale[/U] them.
