"Living on summer beaches, encamped and split driftwood log houses and cedar bark roofing. Most from the river village whom boat from the river to the coast for salmon,  Caribou passed through these beaches on their way north, along the coasts as the off shore winds kept the mosquitoes away.  When the breezes often died out at night, the raid of mosquitoes were an event.  Most everyone dressed heavy and were not plagued by incessant biting, and became less irritating.  New to this country one would suffer, no matter, mosquitoes fall into hot coffee and food and flood in a quick entry into a house. But thankfully enough, along the sea, mosquitoes are tolerable."
