Is it the dock is in, or is it the dock is out? I'm kinda stumped with the terminology. But, no matter how you phrase it, all I know is the dock is not being used until the spring of 2017. Thanks Dan, for helping me take it out/in this year.
The Skilak Glacier Dammed Lake semiannual release happened this week and has caused the Kenai River water to rise 9.6 feet. As I was pulling my boat out for the year I saw this floating at the confluence of Beaver Creek and the Kenai. That's the end piece of someone's dock. The tall part of the structure is a fish cleaning station. It's sights like these that makes me feel fortunate that my dock is protected by an island. I've never, ever, experienced a problem with high water.
Several swans, seagulls, and a lone immature bald eagle seemed to be saying, "see you next year!" Right back at ya!
