Coming Home to Ketchikan
By Aisha Marshall

My name is Aisha and I moved to Ketchikan when I was 2 years old. I am now 11 years old. I moved to Spokane 2 years ago this coming August. I had the chance to come back to Ketchikan and visit this spring break. It is my 'home'. I also had a chance to visit my 'family' the Antonsens and my friends. My aunty Beth Antonsen let me row the boat that she built for me. What a great memory.

I am very connected to Ketchikan and I wanted to visit so that I could see what it looked like after 2 years. I went fishing, built a bon fire, and took walks on the beach. I went to my favorite book store, Parnassus. I even saw Lilian even though she was no longer working at the book store.

Living in Spokane is nice but I sure miss the water in Ketchikan. It only rained 2 times when I was there. I miss the rain at times. On my next vacation I plan on having my mom come with me so that we can enjoy Ketchikan together. She also loves the rain, going hiking and walking on the beach.
