Executive Chef Richard Bye and his Crew worked insane hours to pull off this enormous feast, The biggest on the island all year, and once again it was an enormous success!
The Food when on for days.........
Not to Mention the Desserts! Especially the chocolate bread pudding with Carmel Sauce!!

A gathering of some of my favorite ladies on the island. From the Left Denise Rankin, Tonya Miller, Wendy Hawthorne, Gert Svarny and Sharon Svarny-Livingston. Gert and her family always have a special place in my heart. They were some of the first to really welcome me to this island, and have always treated me with kindness and love. Gert Reminds me so much of my Grandmother Helen Gahr that I thought I'd put up a picture of her. They both have that same easy warmth and special laugh that just makes everyday go a little bit better.
And Congratulation to Gert and her Husband Sam for their 61st Anniversary!
AB presents Diane Fejes with an OC Jacket.She is retiring from KPMG after 30 years as a tax accountant for the Corp.
And the McCracken Brothers and their Dad Andy Show off their "Fiddling" Skills!

And to Close us out "Father" And "Mother" from the Russian Orthodox Church.
With So many of my favorite people in one place, and Such good Food you never want the night to end!
Still though, other things do go on here.............like this group of kyakers preparing to make the voyage to Akutan...........Humm, Should probably check in with April to see if they made it.
And though you would not know it unless you were here the island is getting greener every day.
Still it was a bit browner last week when Kyle and I went to Ulakta head.
Had to include this one because my sister freaks out every time I climb out on this outcrop from the Bunker up there. It really is the perfect place to have a Mountain Dew!
It's only like a 1000 foot drop................nothing to be scared over
I even got Scardy cat Kyle out on a Bunker
It's all worth it for the views!!!
And Finally, it was time for CB to Do a Bit of Gardening when the plants came in over at Alaska Ship.
So from this and.........
All it took was like 5 bags of soil and about 100 plants
To Transform both sides of the Port De Chalet into something presentable.
I'll keep you updated on their progress.
Have a great day Everyone!
