The city provided this convenient fish-cleaning station.
While fishing today, Jerry saw a mother mallard and 7 little ducklings. Unfortunately, he didn’t have the camera with him. We’ll just put in this picture of a stuffed loon eating a hooligan for now. It was at the Visitors Center. I love the sound loons make: something between a laugh and a cry. I think the red eyes are striking, too.
The Soldotna Public Library is temporarily housed in the mall.
The inside of the library is small, but adequate. They have computers and Wi-Fi as well as other amenities such as newspapers. They have quite a good selection of recent fiction considering the space constraints.
Here are some pictures of another of Lisa’s mules. This one is called Blackjack.
AAt over 17 hands and 1500 pounds, Blackjack is bigger than Billy Bob. He’s also quite affectionate, but not quite as spoiled as BB. According to Lisa, their fur color fades some in the summer. In winter, she says, they are completely black.
Can you stand one more picture of Mt. Redoubt? Every time I see it I am in awe.
A little cooler here today – a high of 57 degrees!!!
