It would be shorter to list what I didn't like but let's not spoil the fun. First of all the scenery is amazing. It just took my breath away. When I stepped down from the boat I couldn't believe I would stay in a place like this so remote, so much nature, so Alaskan...
Then of course come our host Randy and Keith. They filled our stay with GENUINE friendliness (I could not insist too much on the genuine ), incredible stories about bears, boat, storm, vikings, moose's poo and pizza (no spoiler here) and marvelous food (My favorite the Swedish pancake).
The amenities ?? it is not the Ritz, it is not what we came for. But we felt at home. And it is made by hand. By two hands, in fact, Keith's hands.
We spend our time like early Alaskan, fishing halibut, kayaking among the sea otter, bush walking (without bear encounter) and delicious meals that still bring saliva to my mouth.
Thinking about it I can't give you any reason not to go there except to let me some room to go back.
