I took my mother, Bonnie Wartes, to Adak this time. I hadn’t been there since November, 2009, and I was anxious to get back, not only to see Isaac, Crystal, and little Rhianna, but to also enjoy the beauty of Adak.
Mom joined me in Anchorage and we spent one night with Kerry Bennett (Nick’s wife) before catching the long flight to Adak. We were in Adak for a week and much of that time was very windy with low clouds. Isaac had hoped to take us out fishing in his boat, but weather didn’t allow that. We did get to drive around on several occasions to show Mom the town and surrounding area.
Of course, Rhianna had to go to take care of Daddy. How she loves to go riding with Dad, whether it’s truck, boat, snow-machine …or whatever.
Plus we got up in the hills twice when it was sunny enough for beautiful views around the island. The last day we even caught a few fish at a gorgeous pool with a small waterfall. It is a favorite fishing hole of many locals for good reason.
