A Month on the Water
July 24 - August 22, 2003
The highlight of the year was time on Prince William Sound. We were out for a full month, and I drank in the peace, solitude, and simplicity. We hunted for a week for Sitka black-tailed deer on Naked Island (no luck). We visited a seal island and sea-lion rookery, saw whales and porpoises, and hiked and canoed to my heart's content. Maybe not quite to my heart's content. I think I could make cruising a permanent, full-time lifestyle, but Dennis likes having a home and a shop.
We took several digital photos and put them together into a movie (below). As usual, we saw a lot that we didn't capture on film! The music on this video is "Einini" by William Coulter, from the album Celtic Crossing. Used by permission. Find it and more of William Coulter's music at www.williamcoulter.com.
Note: This is an embedded YouTube video and I can't control what YouTube puts at the end of it.
For the best video footage we've ever seen of Prince William Sound, order Bill Rome's Prince William Sound Up Close. Bill spent 20 years taking video in the Sound. He compiled his best footage into this film. We don't always have cameras handy, whereas photography is his passion and he's willing to wait for the perfect shot. We haven't seen exactly the same things he's seen, of course, but he captured more of the kind of things we we saw out there over the years than we have.
