On this past trip to Afognak we did have visitors who came for a day to fish and hang out on the beach (more on this in a later post). But for most of the trip it was just us - Mom, Dad, Nora, Stuey and Brewster the dog.
In the old days when we were alone as a family we used to have a difficult time keeping the kids entertained. These days that is not an issue. Nora does her tidepooling, Stuey shoots his slingshot, Zoya does her writing, and dad explores with his camera. Brewster chases squirrels and sleeps. We all go on family exploring trips.
Unplugged family time. Ahhhhh Patrick
