My sister and brother-in-law, along with daughter Rachel, own the Fire Island Rustic Bakeshop, certainly the finest bakery and pastry shop in the state of Alaska. Our nephew Jason manages one of the bakeshop, too, making it a true family affair.
When we arrived in May, they were overseeing the construction of their third bakery, this one with a giant oven to meet the demand for bread and cakes.
In August, Fire Island opened its newest shop on a beautiful, sun-struck day.
Take a tour of the construction site and meet some of the people behind the counter at the new bakery below.
