The Kenai Penisula
September 2nd, 2007
Hello!!!! Thanks to Whitney Mortimer's sleuthing and Chris's long effort today, we have pictures on the blog. Wow! We are in Seward, about 3 hours south of Anchorage on on the Kenai peninsula. Since the last post, we have wandered down from Chitina to Anchorage, Cooper Landing, Homer, and Seward. We finally got the car fixed (full access to the back--pretty sweet), and have gone on some fantastic adventures with cousin Whitney and Lee and Joyce (Aunt & Uncle extraordinaire). It is getting darker 8 minutes earlier each day, and now it is almost completely dark by 10:00. We're celebrating with a big bonfire and s'mores. It's also pretty frosty, although we have had glorious weather for the Kenai--a full week of warm sunny days. It is getting down to the 40's at night and into the 60's in the day. We are plenty snuggy in our flannel sheets, warm blankets, down bags and polar fleece. We're ready to hit some good solid cold weather and then we'll bail to Mexico!
Too many highlights for my energy right now....thinking of you all this big transition time.....sad to not be joining the ranks at Hilltown, but very happy to be settling into our adventure. Cassidy and Teslin are starting weekly reports on some fun thing---Teslin is starting with Sea Otters and Cassidy with Alcids...we'll have them up for you on the blog with any luck. (you'll just have to wait and see what an Alcid is). We have come across some great Wetlands, Sealife, and Sea bird curriculum through the Alaska Fish and Wildlife. We are hoping to do most of this years schooling around the places, people, and critters in the areas we are traveling. Glaciers, bears, sea lions, otters, and really cool birds are top of our list right now. Well....Cassidy is ready for another bird update, so I will make room for him. Tata for now, Anny
