Nora and Stuey
Nora and Stuey have always loved going to Afognak, but they have not always been easy to entertain once they got there. Hikes were always too long, or they needed our supervision and active participation to be happy. But this year I am happy to say that we seemed to have turned a corner.
I'll admit some of the long hikes still ended in tears, and there were plenty of kid spats, but in general kid entertainment was far, far easier. They wanted to go on long hikes and kayak trips, and looked forward to the daily exploration trip. They kayaked on their own in the shallow water next to the beach. Stuey quietly tended the fire alone. WOW!
