After writing everything I wanted to about our Alaska vacation, I was left with a handful of random shots–the dregs of the cup of coffee that was Alaska, so to speak. They don’t form a coherent story, but let’s see what we got.
Ooooh–the flowers. They grow so big. I wonder if I sat out in the strong Alaskan summer sun all day long if I would also grow big.
I’ll make a mental note never to do that, just in case.
The little rubber band wrists of a small sicky resting on the larger hand of a big sicky. Both of the boys got colds around the same time, and rested together in the rocking chair. A sweeter sight has never been seen.
This was amazing–front page Fairbanks news boasts a large picture of a bird flying. Newsflash! Newsflash! Bird spotted flying over body of water!
What a unique moment in the daily affairs of Alaska–not.
The railroad somewhere during our Fairbanks to Anchorage road trip.
The boys, renewing each others’ acquaintance on day one.
Checkin’ each other out. Well, his face is kind of hairy . . .
. . . but I guess he’ll have to do.
Plants by the side of the road . . .
Shots of the dramatic mountains from the rear view mirror . . .
And a very foggy mountain.
And that is it. Phew. I can’t believe I’ve been talking about Alaska for 2 months. Blessings upon each one of you for sticking with me during this gift that keeps on giving.
Have a great Monday, every one! Less dregs and more coherency for the rest of the week. Maybe.
Though on second thought, I wouldn’t count on it.
