Fishing Trip 2010

From Seward, we head down to Soldotna. We spent two nights there, went fishing and went down to Homer and visit my sister in law.

Most people throw it back to water, but there are some who will keep it. I just don't know how they cook it. Even though we didn't use the boat, we caught 13 sockeye salmon just fishing by the shore. This is Homer Alaska My Mother really likes Homer My sister-in-law built this playhouse, in front of her house, for her grandson.
