And we went out fishing with a gill net to catch the salmon on their runs up the Nome River. IMG_4295

In the meantime, there is a little banjo-pickin’…IMG_4113

  1. if you squint and move your bed just so, pretend you are hot and not cold, and the turns are cockatoos… And the salmon are catfish or … Something… Kind of like the May River!

  2. Oh my goodness! Love all these happy posts. I’m so amazed at how many treasures you find on the beach. I wonder if seaglass and such washes up on the shores in Anchorage… I don’t think so, really, but maybe it’s just picked over. Yummy salmon! You know, everyone I know of who lived in or lives in Nome just seems to love it. I think there’s a really special community there!

    • Thanks, Mary Anne! :) Yes to everything you said. :) I have not gotten to explore the shores of Anchorage much, but I wonder? Yes, there is a really strong, warm, friendly community of people who look at for each other. It’s kind of the old-fashioned way of neighbors working together, and it’s easier to live a little more off the land here, which I love!!! <3 I feel lucky to have found Nome.
