South East Alaska has welcomed me home beautifully for a third season! Our first full trip in Alaska began with sunny skies and calm seas, what a start! It’s nice to cruise back through our old neighbourhoods and reconnect with some of our local friends. The Swell has gotten a reputation as the cookie wranglers. Packing fresh home baked cookies everywhere we go! So far we’ve handed out our cookies in Port Alexander after diving Vancouver Rock and the Port Armstrong Fish Hatchery while taking an informative tour after diving the majestic Wooden Island. I spent most of the evening brainstorming new, creative recipes and getting a head start on baking! Not bad for our first week! And there’s only more fun and diving to continue!
