Kenny Catching Salmon on the Kenai River
We got lucky with the Gallery Lodge in Kasilof. It's right on the river. We saw a moose swim across this afternoon. The owner loaned us waders so I took Kenny into Soldatna and he caught a ten pound sockeye salmon in the Kenai River.
Yesterday we visited the town of Kenai to watch the "natives" dip net sockeye. Between 50,000 and 100,000 are entering the river here every day.
On the way we saw a moose browsing on the roadside.

Something to do with an old shoe.

We stopped in Anchor point to watch them launch halibut fishermen.
We also went to Ninilchik to watch people dig clams but for some reason it was empty.
We've seen a bunch of old Russian Orthodox churches everywhere we've been. The church was expanding aggressively into Alaska 200 year ago, before Seward purchased it from the Czar for 2 cents an acre.
This is Kirill I, the current Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox church.
