Wow it was cold. But I had to see this sunset. It began about 3:15 and by the time I left the beach at 4:00 it was over. It must have been take off time for the cargo planes because they were right behind one another. I also got a few incoming planes in the sunset shots I didn't post.
When I was walking back to my truck I passed these little girls playing on the beach. I was a walking Popsicle and they were playing with the frozen ice chips on the beach. Boy did I feel like a wossie.
On Sunday, Ruth and I got up early to possible get some sunrise pix's for her. I got a tip from a news photographer (to remain anonymous) on where the best place to take shots at. I was having a problem with street lights and stuff being in the way. He said check out the pedestrian bridge at the Loussac Library. Bad tip! It was worse. But on the bright side we had a normal sunrise, nothing as colorful as the last few days.
Even more on the bright side we got some good frozen stuff pix's. Poor Zachariah Loussac here is one cold looking fellow. Zack was the Mayor of Anchorage from 1948 to 1951.
Zachariah Joshua Loussac was born to Jewish parents in Pokrov (Vladimir Oblast), Russia in 1882. As an engineering student, he came under scrutiny for an interest in "some of the more liberal literature of the time".
In 1907, Loussac fled Czarist Russia for Alaska, living in Nome, Unalakleet, Iditarod and Juneau before settling down in Anchorage. In 1949, at the age 66, he married Ada Harper. It was his first and only marriage. He died in Seattle on March 15, 1965. His ashes are interred in Angelus Memorial Park in Anchorage.
