Pictures make wonderful memories of vacations, events, and everything else. I ran across some older pictures taken in Alaska today and thought how wonderful it is to have a scanner that sends the images directly into my computer.
Yes, I’m the one who looks at each picture and could write a novel about the occasion. This blog won’t be anywhere near that long, so please continue reading.
It had been years since we’d seen friends who lived in Alaska, so we plotted our course to include each one. Traveling that distance indicated a need to see family, as well. Alaska is lots bigger than it looks on the map, so we decided to fly to Anchorage and rent a motor home for the journey. What a bargain that turned out to be! A comfortable bed, a kitchen, and an opportunity to stop and relax anytime we wanted.
Fish? Wow, does Alaska have fish! I’m not a big fan of eating them, but I enjoy fishing a lot. A cousin put us in touch with a guide that made sure I caught my limit of salmon. It was actually an incredible day for fishing, as limits were reached for everyone in our boat and the boats of other guides we passed along the way. It was a treat to see these moose on the banks as we spent time traveling up the Kenai River.
I’d always wanted to see Valdez and the beautiful glaciers in that area. That was our “stop and splurge on dinner” destination. The owner of the restaurant we stopped at noted we were a bit early for dinner, but he prepared a delicious steak for me anyway.
