I thought of buying a place like this in Sitka. Seriously, I was close to doing that but in the end, I chose Arizona and built. The seas rarely freeze there and the weather is more moderate than many locations in Alaska.
The proximity of children and grandchildren prevailed in the end.
But damn, Sitka was appealing.
I’d have had to buy a float plane, and fly to the store, but you can do that, there. Sacrifices…
