Kayaking Adventures!

Me and Jake haven't been able to go on very many adventures this year, Since I'm taking online classes and working two jobs but the few we have been on have been GrEaT! One of my favorite adventure was when we went sea kayaking. It was a nice sunny day and we went out with a few of our friends. We decided to kayak out to an island. While we were out in the ocean we saw a few sea lions playing around and we saw some whales out in the distance. A few minutes later we heard a weird sound right behind us. It was a SEA LION! only two feet away from out kayak. Our little friend followed us around for most of the day. About fifteen minutes later we heard another weird sound... It was a whale! it popped up right in front of us. We were only about 20 feet away and had to stop our kayaks so we didn't hit it. This definitely was the scariest most exciting moment ever!

HoMe SwEeT hOmE!

When we got to Alaska they didn't have our apartment ready for us yet. So, we got to stay in the hotel for the first few weeks. It was nice to have someone make the bed for us, have cable T.V, and being able to walk to work. Now we are staying in a really cute attic apartment. It's really nice but now we don't have T.V, we have to clean up after ourselves, and its about a ten minute drive to work. (Which means ten minutes less I get to sleep!)
