This is our last Saturday in Alaska for this summer. We come up here each year and soak up the cool temperatures mixed with days of sunshine and rain showers, good friends, fresh fish caught in the cold Alaskan seas and rivers and lakes. The days are long; it truly is the land of the midnight sun. Today we drove down the New Seward Highway to Girdwood and had lunch at Jack Sprat. Before returning home to grill steaks for dinner, we went shopping at Nordstrom in downtown Anchorage--a most enjoyable way to end a really great day. Amen.
