Haven't updated my blog in a while. I don't have a lot of time right now. We are leaving Alaska tomorrow. After we flew out of Barrow and to Fairbanks, not a lot happened there. We saw some moose and did some birding, hiking, fishing, etc. Then we left Dr. Dave and Jill and went back to Talkeetna for one night. The place were we stayed was horrid. My mom called it the "Hostel From Hell". First, we looked around the town. Then, as soon as we got back, it was late and we went to our four-bunk bed. Then, we realized some guy we didn't even know was asleep on one of our bunks! We woke him up and told him that he was in the wrong room, and he left. It was really hard going to sleep. It was gross- we couldn't even go on the carpet with bare feet. Plus, we kept hearing gun shots. Plus, there was this really loud motorcycle at three in the morning. Plus, somebody was singing in the shower at one point. Plus, these people staying there had the TV outside our room REALLY LOUD till like 2 AM and it was some war movie where all you ever heard was like victory and defeat yells-which are really loud. The next day we went to Seward. It was nice there. We went to a Sea Life center. There were also these really cute bunnies, and they were so tame that they would eat from your hand--in Ohio, wild bunnies just like run away from you. After a few days we went to Homer, where we are now. The place we are staying in is a log cabin-- all to our self (thank god). We have been doing a lot of walking and fishing. Yesterday, when we took nine casts in a row, we caught seven fish---AND a starfish! We also saw a whale. I don't think I've ever heard of someone catching a starfish. I'm sorry I can't put on pictures, but the Library, where the wifi is, is about to close
