My job allows me to visit a lot of Alaska on a yearly basis. I wanted to capture the trips in one location!

Horse Island, 30 minute boat ride away

on November 26, 2012

Early Oct. 2012

Our friends Rob and Nell have built a ‘cabin’ on Horse Island, however it is the nicest ‘cabin’ I have ever been in.  Horse Island is across from the end of Douglas Island.  Rob does amazing work with his construction and Nell’s artistic flair is highlighted throughout the house. They invited Harry and me over for a night and we took them up on the offer.  It was a beautiful boat ride over.  We ran into Ron and Nan who have a cabin around the corner.

We sat on the porch with adult beverages, watched whales go by as well as sea lions and seals.  It was beautiful.  In the morning we watched the sun rise and could see Mendenhall Glacier across the water.

The highlight of the night was the cedar hot tub/bath they have.  Everyone got their turn in the 1 person tub and enjoyed a good bath!  They have 2 bedrooms upstairs and had just put a door on theirs, so they didn’t have to be worried with Kootz bothering them during the night.

All and all it was a great night and we sure did appreciate their invitation!
