I recently returned from a much needed 5 day vacation in Tenakee. It's a wonderful little town where cell phones, internet and even cars cease to exist. Right after school let out for summer vacation Stephenie and I packed our backpacks and headed for the ferry.
After a 7 hour ferry ride (also known as the poor man's cruise!) we arrived in Tenakee. A whale greeted us while the ferry was docking and the sun peeked out just a little.
The sun came out in full splendor the following day and we took advantage of it by hiking out and finding an amazing beach where we had a picnic lunch, sun bathed and listened to the whales in the channel.
The following day our friend, Katrina, flew out to join us on our adventure. She had never been to Tenakee before so we flew her out as part of her birthday present.
Sunshine, whales and morning coffee on the' deck was the perfect way to celebrate a birthday. We soaked up the sun and were absolutely lazy all day. That evening we joined up with Wally and Cindy at the Palapa Bar and were treated to an amazing dinner of fresh halibut and crab.
This was the perfect way to start our summer break and I could not have asked for a better trip!
