Journal Entry:
Spent the day on a kayak tour on Resurrection Bay in the Kenai Fjords. Overall it was excellent. Wolf and I shared a double kayak. The only problem with the trip was that we had to go a lot slower than we wanted to.

We saw quite a few bald eagles and sea otters.

At the farthest point of out trip (about 5.5 miles out, past North beach), I was skipping stones and picked up a sharp rock. As I tried to skip it it sliced my right pointer finger open. I should probably get stitches, but I think if I keep it tapped and clean it will be ok (in other words I don't like doctors). On the way back we paddled up a stream and watched the salmon run (mostly chum I think).
