After selling his tri-level, Soldotna home, Kenai Peninsula College Associate Professor of Psychology Paul Landen unpacked his belongings into a suite at the KPC Residence hall. It is now his permanent residence.
Years ago I saw “The Scorpion King” starring a charismatic wrestler known as The Rock. I remember telling my wife that the movie was terrible, but the wrestler was, surprisingly, not bad. Since then, The Rock, or Dwayne Johnson, as he came to be known, has made a career out of improving mediocre films with his winning personality and incredibly charismatic performances. He is a good actor, if not necessarily a great one, but he tends to boost the quality of just about any project he’s associated with. Until now.
It was not quite the weekend, but it might as well have been. I surveyed the beach below and saw the masses of people with dipnets peppering the beach as the waves rolled in. This was going to be the day of the great salmon fish surge and I was ready.
While there are many things to do and places to go on the Kenai Peninsula, antique shops and/or flea markets are rarely among them. Until the outdoor Swank Street Antiques & Art Market made its debut in Soldotna the weekend of July 18th, that is.
