Lovely afternoon sunshine always makes the spirits’ refresh in Southeast Alaska. Today’s adventure was George Island where I quite enjoyed myself on a crew hike. The shore was covered with giant kelp tubes with the smell of the fresh forest. The island has quite the rich history from World War II with a military gun emplacement left over from the war where 40 people lived there & protected Cross Sound from the Japanese invasion. The trails were easy navigating marked by rocky steps with spectacular views of the snow capped mountains in the distance with the lush green vegetation with wildflowers such as the famous “shooting star”. It was peaceful to watch the waves crash along the shore. Over all a fun filled afternoon with crew unwinding & admiring the beauty.
