Last week I was able to post 25 of Taylor’s beautiful photos, and YOU LOVED THEM! I  would like to continue to post Taylor’s photos on a weekly basis – so keep a look out!  Usually, if I have the photos available, I will be posting a series at the beginning of each week! Please share this photo story with friends and comment as we want to encourage our local young photographer!

Enjoy this new “walk” through Seldovia!

Have you had the opportunity to see our Seldovia on one of the newest episodes of“Buying Alaska” on Discovery’s Destination America channel?   You can view the previews at the link above.

We have already had the pleasure to see John and Paulie Carluccio’s cabin (Uncharted Alaska – preview #5 on above link), which is one of Seldovia Property’s listings on Seldovia Bay that was featured in the episode on October 21st, 2012.  Check out this video below to that first episode that featured Seldovia, Halibut Cove and Kasitsna Bay properties. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOrt1NyMysM?rel=0]

Tonight there will be an entire episode featuring floatplane accessible properties in the Seldovia area!  In this episode, on November 25,2012, Buying Alaska is showing off two properties on the west side of Seldovia Bay and one on MacDonald Spit.

Working with the producers during the three days of filming was a great experience and this new show has been such fantastic exposure for Alaska, and now, Seldovia!  Taking over 22 hours of film and editing down to 22 minutes will prove very interesting, as there is so much to see and so much to say!  These three properties are beautiful, with amazing features and locations that highlight the beauty of our area, and I’m sure the show will spark the interest of many folks looking at Alaska!  Following this link, you can view two of the three properties previews, The Isolated Property(11)  and the Bay Property (12) – each have a 2 minute trailer.

Buying Alaska will air tonight on Destination America
6pm and 9pm on Channel 194 on Dish Network
Channel 286 on Direct TV.

To view these featured properties and other current available listings in the Seldovia area, please visit my website at SeldoviaProperty.com.

I received an update that Mary’s daughters are together in Anchorage and that Chuck is recovering in the hospital.  He continues to undergo surgeries to address his many broken bones.  It will be a long healing process, both physically and emotionally as he recovers from this terrible accident.

If you would like to send a card or thoughts their way, the addresses for Chuck and Mary’s daughters are listed below. Mary was loved by many in Seldovia and will be sorely missed.  We will continue to keep Chuck and the rest of the family in our thoughts and prayers.
