In a run down old building in the heart of Soldotna, AK, someone decided to open a coffee shop and offer expensive coffee and really delicious pastries. I wasn’t drawn in by the smell of the coffee… I was struck by the simplicity and beauty of the fence and fireweed. The Alaskan’s say that when the fireweed is gone… summer is over.
Just the other morning Jack and I were discussing the changes that we have seen in our lives. Many things that were “necessities” are now “collectibles”. I remember … I would place the empty milk bottles at the front door and the milkman would deliver fresh milk every other day and that was only 40 years ago. I bet these milk bottles would sell for a whole lot more than the price of milk back in the day.
If you are interested in spotting whales, sea lions, and puffins while out glacier watching, cruise in Kenai Fjords. The day that we went out it was freezing, blowing cold and later bright bluebird blue skies. No, I didn’t see any whales, but I did see an island full of sea lions and a glacier calving. It all depends upon where you are in the day cruise. I think that I could make an application to life but I will let you do that.
