tonight because I am leaving Kotzebue in the morning. I feel a little sad about it. Of course I want to sleep in my own bed again, but I have to tell you, I am back in love with Alaska.I took pictures along the way. This first one is an accidental picture. I love it though. It is just a native man walking along the beach. We were actually down there watching the seals in the sound. The sound was full of them, but they were to far out to get a good picture.
The cemetery up on the hill again. I love it. It is so primitive, yet beautiful and serene. Standing on this hill and looking west, you look down onto the village and harbor.
My grandson Ben and I out on the Tundra. There were several people out there picking blueberries and low bush cranberries.This lovely lady was very agreeable to allowing me to take her picture while she was picking. She also stopped and showed me what she had picked.
She had been out there for about an hour and a half. She was trying to get a gallon picked tonight and is striving for a gallon every night this week. She also had blueberries in her bucket. She says she cooks them all together with a little sugar and then adds flour to thicken them. I did not think to ask how they eat them though.
