Alaska is Cool!

DaGoddess @ 19:41

I guess it sort of goes without saying that Alaska is cool, but I had to say it anyway. So far, I’ve seen a couple moose (one even looked at me and snorfled at me, too), a squirrel or two, a bald eagle, a golden eagle, a cute little bunny, caribou, and big ass mosquitoes.

I’ve taken a couple hundred photos.

I’ve been rained on while photographing the snorfling moose.

Had some really good food (dinner last night was at around 10pm is broad daylight). Alaskan White beer (GOOD!). Met very nice people. And slept a like a freakin’ log. Now we’re off to run around in a flood channel, then visit some moistened bit in a lake (bonus points if you get that one, perhaps the watery tart will distribute some cutlery), and who knows what else.

I like it here. Lots.

I may never leave.

Oh, and been watching a dog chase rocks. Cuz that’s what dogs in Alaska do. Okay, maybe only this one.


  1. I’ve never been to Alaska, but it seems like everyone I know has. I even had a long distance relationship with a guy in Alaska. It sounds like an amazing place. I’ve never heard a single negative thing about it. Can’t wait to see your photos and hear your stories!

  2. My son and his wife did an Alaskan cruise and loved it. It’s on my bucket list, right after our night on Coronado beach.

  4. Mike, you keep saying Coronado, but you never show up. By the way, got chocolate?

    Marcie, you definitely need to see Alaska.

    Cheri, :may:

  5. My travel calendar for the rest of the year is booked – Chicago, New York, Kentucky, Australia. San Diego is on my list for 2010. Really.

  6. Sounds wonderful! So glad you’re having a great time!! :yay:

    Alaska is on my list, but far enough down so that I don’t think of it often. ;)

  9. Any chance you need a luggage carrier? A nanny? Anything? I would love to go see those places! Can’t wait to see the pictures.

  10. Joanie, my daughter and I are getting together tomorrow morning to book our flight to Sydney and hotel room for the Food Festival. We will probably fly Delta out of LAX but we need to decide on a date in October. You are welcome to join us. Who knows what might happen between meals?

  11. vw, it’s only by the grace of amazing friends that I’ve been fortunate enough to go where I have.

    Mike, no way in hell I could afford to do Australia, but if the timing is right, I could meet you and your daughter up at LAX if you have a layover.
