Verso Annotation:

“Inland, near Wasilla where I lived in Alaska, the ocean was only a few miles away. Seagulls would land near my door and welcomed bread I would [throw] to them. Now, the sun comes up at nine in the morning and follows the horizon all day and sets at four… never going up and overhead! The entire day in twilight, beautiful! Also, often a full moon can also be far up, so Alaska is somewhat a [magical] land.

Often a sailboat might come into Turnagain bay. (named Turnagain because when one of the first white sailors entered the bay he soon found that it didn’t go around an island, so he had to turn again to get back into the ocean.”
