This week started with the end of a bang-up vacation in sunny Venice, CA and flowed into the trip of a lifetime to spectacular Cordova, Alaska.
Sadly, just one day into my trip and after a spectacular view as up close and personal with a glacier that I’ll probably ever get, fisherwoman Heidi took a spill on the docks and ended up in the ER with a broken wrist and tragically no Copper River salmon in hand.
I’ll be sharing more about my (brief) trip after my return to the lower 48 and a visit to the surgeon so please excuse the one-handed type-os and daydreams of once again kneading pie dough and homemade pasta in the future.
In the meantime, you can join me in following my other blogging pals on the trip by living the trip vicariously at #copperriversalmon on Instagram. I know I will be.
Prior to my smash-up, I worked up a few Friday Faves to share, so let’s dig on in…
