“It’s Ukee days! Get out of Bed and to the pancake breakfast.” That was what I woke up to yesterday when a truck with a loud speaker drove by my house at seven in the morning in an attempt to get people out of bed.
But many people were already up as the weather was sunny and beautiful all weekend. The sun was shining all Saturday and Sunday for the logger sports, the races down Main Street and even for the evening beer gardens. There was a great line up of live music and better yet, the salmon were hitting the lines hard. Not only are the boats bringing in big numbers of Chinook and halibut, but the Pinks are hitting the docks in a big way. We were delayed 10 minutes getting our bus moving to the airport today just because there was so much fish to load. The forecast is sunny and the fish keep coming. July is shaping up to be a great month and we’re excited to see what August brings.
