Calling for a few Prayers....

Some of you who are new to my blog don't know that every
summer for the last....well almost 20 years.
My husband and I along with my brother
work at my parents fishing lodge.
We have two locations one on the main side and one
across the inlet in a remote area.
But as some of you know that we have been trying to sell
the main lodge for 2 years now so my parents can retire.
Some locals heard the news and
stopped by to leave their well wishes.
We have someone flying up on April 1st
to look at the lodge.

The only problem is this winter the natural springs
have been so terrible for ice.
My parents have to go over this on this steep hill
and the drop off is 30ft. if they go over.
yesterday they said it's even worse.

Just driving on the beach is bad enough
but they have that steep treacherous hill to get up after.
So pray for WARM weather so we can even get the potential buyer
in to see it....
They have quite a view the mornings
and evenings.

The rough days are the ones I love to watch....

This is who they want to retire with...

Do a little of this....this is my brother.
enjoy this with a glass of wine every night.

Thank goodness we will still be able to Halibut fish
this is something I take for granted
fresh fish!
So the thought of not having to cook for the first time,
not having to hear that 3am alarm all summer.
my parents can finally enjoy themselves without all
the pressure of running two places and they can
finally go on their trip to Denmark and Norway after
50 years....
Please Pray they just fall in love with it.....
for more lovely photos.
April 1st is the day!

My next post I can't wait to show you all
this beautiful

    That driveway is so horrid I will pray that it melts.

    Your parents deserve a break!


  5. You have my prayers in this, Heidi. I can understand that beautiful as this place is sometimes you're ready to slow down and let someone else have it. It's time, I'ms sure, for all of you. Blessings and prayers.

    Fingers crossed and prayer that the buyer sees the potential of that wilderness! Amazing. Alaska.

  15. Stunningly beautiful photos! I hope the right buyer will turn up soon :o)

  16. Well don't I feel bad for complaining about our chilly temperatures! And I won't even mention how the UK ground to a standstill in December due to (in comparison to yours!) pathetic snowfall!

  17. I will pray that the ice melts and the road will be safe for the visit! Your pictures are so beautiful, I can't imagine that the potential buyers won't fall in love with it!

    When your folks retire, they can come and visit us in Douglas!

  18. Heidi, you and your parents are now in my prayers!!! I hope they will be able to sell the lodge. It looks wonderful, but I'm sure it's a ton of work. 20 years wow, I'm impressed!!! Thats a lot of summers my dear girl!!!
    Their lodge looks like such a beautiful place, who would not want a piece of Gods land!!!
    Keep the faith, we are all praying for you and your parents!

  24. What a beautiful place your parents have, the setting and views are spectacular!
