Last year I wrote an Alaska Bucket List before I left and I was lucky to cross every item off the list, so this year I have a new list:
- See the orcas. I see Humpback Whales every day, but I never seem to be around when the orcas are seen. This year I plan to change that.
- See a bear. I am the only person left who hasn't seen a bear.
- Catch a big Halibut. The biggest one I've ever caught is 33 lbs. That's not big.
Coming back was a bigger adjustment than I thought it would be, but it's definitely easier than it was coming up here the first time. Already knowing the job, the crew, and a lot of the guests makes everything a little easier. I can't believe we're already 1/3 of the way through the season, it's flying by (fun fact: my 21st birthday is in 44 days. Woohoo!). Each day has its ups and downs but as long as the good days outweigh the bad it'll all be worth it in the end.
