Ellamar, AK

It had been far too long since I had visited our family cabin in Prince William Sound. Making a quick trip there is often difficult, because it requires that I can catch a flight to Valdez and then get a boat ride out to Ellamar. Last May, the stars aligned – I found a cheap ticket to Anchorage on JetBlue, used miles to fly to Valdez, and rendezvoused with my parents in Valdez for a boat ride to the cabin.

It was a short trip – Friday to Tuesday – but in just 3 days I was really able to unwind and feel the comfort of being home. We shrimped, fished, saw wales, kayaked, and did some hiking. We also sat around the cabin and played cards.
