Traveling by a Float Plane

Traveling by a Float Plane

Today is unfortunately my last day in Alaska, this time tomorrow I’ll be back home in Florida!
But first we had to get out of our secluded little town, and the only way to do that is by boat or float plane. This time we opted for the float plane!
Float planes are fun and different but not when it’s windy and you experience turbulence the whole time. :/
Any day but today would have been a perfect day for a float plane, but we were not that lucky with the weather. Anyways, I snapped a few photos in the plane while trying not to get sick. Ha 🙂20140728-151343-54823795.jpg

As you can see the weather was not the best. But the past couple weeks have been amazing! Can’t wait till next year

Exploring Eagle Island

Exploring Eagle Island

a1

Eagle Island is the little island right across from our Alaskan cabin.

You only have a few hours a day when you can walk to it, and that is when the tide is low.

Every summer I never fail to explore the island and be amazed at all the colorful creatures you find.

I hope you enjoy this little adventure as much as I did

Whenever you find one, you find a ton

One of the main things you find on Eagle Island are thousands of starfish, waiting for the tide to roll back in.

This is a fat, fuzzy starfish. Not sure of its scientific name

Sunfish. Similar to a starfish, but as you can see they have a lot more limbs

Alaskan Cabin in the Woods

Alaskan Cabin in the Woods

Today, July 17th marks the day of our arrival to my birthplace, Alaska! After a grueling six and a half hour flight from Orlando to Seattle and an overnight stay with our very large cat, followed by another short one and a half flight from Seattle to Ketchikan Alaska, and finishing off with a 45 minute boat ride, we finally made it to our home. Meyers Chuck is a very small community with no gas stations, no roads, no cars, no stores, nothing. All that you will find in Meyers Chuck are the wonderful people that reside here, most of them only during the summer months.

I thought I would share with you our little cabin in the woods.

Steps down to the water. The tide is currently on it's way in. Twice a day this area is completely dry.

One of the ways to travel around Meyers Chuck are the trails built throughout the community.
