Halibut Fishing


"Dear Leslie and Alan, George and I want you to know what a wonderful time we had at the Grand View in July! You two are just great! The dungeness crab from Steve that you boiled for us on your deck and served with melted butter was one of the most memorable meals we had in Alaska! Thanks for going out of your way to make it such a great experience for us! We loved Wrangell and hope we can come back some day.

Just had to send you some pictures of our night eating dungeness crab. You can tell George was a happy man!

Best Regards to both of you! "
