We’re going to Kodiak!
Wanna come along? There’s plenty to do. To start with, this year marks the 50th Anniversary of CrabFest, the big community-wide event over Memorial Day (May 22-26).
I’m staying at Marty and Marion’s new B-n-B on the water. Learn all about it on the website. Check out the photo. Marion took it from the deck–just as the Trusty Tusty (aka m/v Tustumena) was pulling out on its ferry run to Homer.
No doubt I’ll be sampling some fine beer at the Kodiak Island Brewery. I’m flying over on Era Aviation. Renting a car from Avis.
Time to caffeinate? No fear. Head over to Mill Bay Coffee Company. Not only does Martine fix a glorious espresso from locally-roasted beans. Mais non! Ce n’est pas finit! You must have a French pastry–something sweet that Joel whipped up in the kitchen. I’ll be a better man–and a bigger one, too.
Mary Stephenson has a booth right at the harbor, where she books activities for everyone: fishing, bear viewing, flightseeing, ATV tours, kayaking…and more. Did I say everything? I meant e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. Call her at: (907)486-8766.
Sushi? Head to the Old Powerhouse restaurant. Best sushi in town.
Local stuff? I love visiting the two museums right downtown (walk from the ferry terminal): the Aluutiq Museum and the Baranov House. But don’t miss the military museum out at Ft. Abercrombie. We visited the museum last fall and actually did a video!
No kidding: plan your trip to Kodiak today. If you can get to Anchorage, climb aboard either Alaska Airlines or Era Aviation for great $79 one-way fares each weekend between now and May 31. If I see you at Crabfest, I’ll buy you a Crab Sandwich!!
