Sitka Farmer Market

Kathy fills a bag with fresh locally grown Chard also know as Swiss Chard. At the market we also picked up fresh carrots, snap peas, rhubarb, kale, garlic and lettuce.
This photo is notable as it was taken well after dark a notable feat here in the higher latitudes with long summer days.
Sitka, Alaska. Sitka in the native language is Tlingit for "by the sea". This is a shot of the inner harbor. As I write there are two bald eagles sitting on the top of the adjacent sailboats mast. How they can both fit up there is a bit of a mystery, but the location is perfect for the eagles to swoop down and snatch fish out of the water just feet from out boat.
