Yesterday was long. And not so fun. A girl can get tired of airports, of packing and hauling luggage, and waiting on planes that don't take take off.
But when the destination is a location as fascinating as Alaska in May, it is worth every bit of the hauling, the waiting, and the endless hours of flying to get here.
We got in after 10 p.m. last night and it was broad daylight. Thank heavens for hotel rooms with blackout shades!
Absolutely starving, we needed to grab something for dinner. With it being so light outside, you would think there would be many things open - not true. Everything looked strange as parking lots were empty and stores were closed in the daylight. But it was nearly 11pm!
Smart people were home sleeping behind their own blackout blinds.
A drive through Dairy Queen was our rescue, and we were soon eating our dinner back in the comfort of our hotel room in Anchorage.
A good night's sleep, and we set out today to do some exploring around Anchorage. We spent a couple hours at the Alaska Zoo! There were many buses of children there on school field trips and it was fun to watch their reaction to the animals.
A little bit of shopping for road trip provisions, and we are now on our way to our destination in Soldotna - my first workshop is tomorrow!
One more night of good relaxing sleep and I should be firmly in this time zone!
Blog updates will come as I am able, and they will be coming from this time zone, so you will need to remember where I am and when to look for posts!
Love from the land of midnight twilight --
