Has it been that long????

I went to Soldotna a couple weekends ago. As I have been bragging about Anchorages weather, it was just as nice down there. There's always plenty of interesting stuff to see.

I always go to the cannery. There's all kinds of neat stuff to be found there. How about a greater yellow-leg? It was running all around the banks of the marsh.

How about an old red truck? I just like the looks of it. No telling what its history is. Its future doesn't look too bright though. There use to be a lot more old vehicles there, but it looks like they have been cleaning up.

Lama's. What can I say. This young one was trying to keep up with mom. I was told that the eagles in the area like them too. There's a ranch down there with a bunch of lama's and some cattle too.


The gulls were chasing eagles that day.
I'll try not to take so long to post again.

What summer weather

You should be able to tell when we are having good weather in Anchorage, because I don't post much when we do. It's had to sit in front of a computer when you have sunshine and 65 plus weather outside. Last year it rained so much that I think half the population came down with webbed feet.

That's not the case this year. You walk around town and anywheres else and everything is alive and in an awesome mood because of the weather. I'm still afraid I'm going to jinx it by talking so much about it.

West Chester Lagoon is loaded with birds of all types. Mallards, Wigeons, Scaups, duckies, and you name it. Seeing all this reminds me daily why I chose to live here. OK, family and friends have something to do with it also.

And of course we have to have the cute duckie picture also.

I hope everyone else summer is going well also.
