Donnie and I took an afternoon and attempted to show Brian and Amanda the glacier. Because of the direction of the tide, we didn't actually make it all the way there but we did get close enough to see some amazing icebergs. We had a fantastic time talking, listening to music, taking in the amazing scenery, and taking pictures.
Brian and Amanda came to visit us, (it's been a blast having them!). Brian is one of Donnie's friends from high school and Amanda is Brian's fiance. One of the days they were out fishing they brought some crab back and, so Brian could have a true Alaskan experience, we had him prepare the crab for boiling by removing the shell and pulling the crab in half. The kids watched while playing with the bubbles that Brian and Amanda brought them. Fun!
We pulled up our crab pots and along with the normal Dungeness crabs we scored a few Tanner crabs (the same crabs that gave our dog his name). They look a lot different than Dungeness and have much longer, thinner legs. The kids had to play with them a bit before we cooked them.
