Port Protection, Alaska
This tiny community, sprinkled beachside, peeking out of the thick coniferous forest, is as much of the sea as of the land. A quick glance suggests that there may be more boats than people in Port Protection. The homes are tucked into the trees all around the edges of the islands, though, and there are about sixty-five residents.
Port Protection is in Wooden Wheel Cove, and the rich waters of Sumner Strait are right outside the cove. The fishing in Sumner Strait is spectacular, so many people come here for sport and commercial fishing. Wildlife watching is also amazing here, with marine and terrestrial creatures in abundance.
