My Fox Island day trip started out a bit differently than most.To begin with all of our clients but one dropped out due to car failure half-way to Seward. One on one trips are a rare occurrence here at Sunny Cove but they often lead to amazing trips. Dennis (pictured above) just recently became a septuagenarian (seventy years old) and decided to come to Alaska to celebrate. An Iowa native and a man of extraordinarily good health for his age, Dennis and I paddled all the way around Fox Island, thus circumnavigating. This is no easy task and not often done. We chatted about racquetball, corn and Iowa gossip because it turned out that Dennis lived only an hour away from my home. Looks like it really is a small world after all.
