Kenai Dip Netting Adventure ~ Part 2

 These photos are from the first day. 
There were so many i wanted to share and it was too many for one post.

Juliet and Ethan got along well this weekend. This picture was taken down on the beach at the mouth of the Kenai river where everyone was fishing. 

A couple churches go in together and set up an out reach tent there and offer face painting, bounce house, bible stories, and free food and drinks. They grilled up and handed out over 500 hot dogs just on Friday. Ethan ate two of those. This kid loves his hot dogs! Almost as much at macaroni and cheese! :) 

Later on that afternoon after the fishermen had gone back for round two the rest of us went down to the beach in front of where we were staying and watched a wind surfer. It wasn't long before Ethan was in the water jumping waves and having the time of his life. 

When big brother saw how much fun he was having he dug out some shorts and a tshirt and joined in.
Bless their little beach lovin hearts!

 Sisters Cosset and Daisy on the sand.

Juliet is their other sister and she always seems to have a grin on her sweet face.

This is the house Mike and Marianne rented for their family for the weekend.
We camped out in a tent on the lawn in front. Other friends brought their RV campers and stayed there as well. For a total of 20 people. Everyone brought food and we all shared lunch and dinners together.

So proud of my hubby's hard work and success in his first time dip netting!

Marianne showing us how she fillets with an electric knife. Geoff wants one for Christmas now. :)

Filleting time! 
High tide was at 6:30pm so by the time they brought the fish back and we cleaned and processed them it was after midnight by the time we all got to bed.

Sunset was around midnight so there was plenty of light to work by. Sunrise at 4:30am. It never got totally dark.


Then up the next morning to catch the high tide and more salmon!
