Ben's Wish to go Fishing in Alaska

Benjamin has always loved fishing and spends most of his free time doing just that. When asked what he wanted for his wish, he chose to go fishing in Alaska so he could experience a different type of fishing than in Florida. Ben also hoped to see other marine life suck as whales and animals native to the area. 

Ben, his parents, and older brother set off for Alaska in style with a limousine ride to the airport. His wish was about to begin! Ben and his family had a full day of salmon fishing our on the open water in Homer, Alaska and a half-day of river fishing in the lower Kenai Peninsula! Ben had personal guide service and even cooked his own fish for dinner! He had quite a catch on his first day of fishing! 

Ben and his family also enjoyed the Alyeska Resort Tram Ride and Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center where he was able to see bison, deer, moose and even some bears! Ben had an amazing wish experience fishing in Alaska! Ben's family sent a message to their Wish Granter, Darlene that said. "...all Ben's wishes are coming True!" It was the trip of a lifetime and one that Ben will treasure forever!
