Unalaska or Dutch Harbor?

Packed Up for the Night

Unalaska or Dutch Harbor, Alaska is an enigma!  I loved this rugged fishing village on the coasts of both Unalaska and Amaknak Islands, connected by a bridge called “the Bridge to the Other Side”.  The island and the town are both named Unalaska. There is a body of water called Dutch Harbor and many people refer to the town as Dutch Harbor or simply Dutch. Technically, there is no town named Dutch Harbor.  Have I confused you???

 

Friday Night

Friday Night

What better spot to sit and reflect (or not) at the end of the week?  Add a glass of wine, a beautiful sunset, and of course, just the sounds of the wading birds.

Twilight at the Marina

The stillness at the marina on Christmas Eve was captivating.  No wind, no boats, no footsteps; just the rightful residents paddling through the marina at sunset.  The scene left me breathless and thankful . . .

Sunset on the Gulf of Suez

We were sailing from the Suez Canal to Aqaba in Jordan, when we were treated to one of the most strikingly beautiful and unusual sunsets that I have ever seen.
