Mar 18, 2005 - Arrival

Moving to Sweden to work as a model? I can't believe nobody called me on that one. I'll take that as a compliment that it is entirely believable that I could move to the land of perfectly gorgeous people and be a model. Thank you! Other than that, I have three words: hook, line, sinker. No, what really happened is that I arrived in the big bad land of Alaska, what some (including my mother) would call "reality", but I would just call the "big bad land of Alaska."

Aug 23, 2000 - Anchorage and Fly Home

We had a great breakfast at the B&B. Very gourmet--crab quiche, fruit and hash browns. We hiked up to Flattop Mountain through the Blueberry Loop. There were wild blueberries all along the trail. The hike was difficult. We returned to downtown Anchorage and had lunch at Humpy's Restaurant. We shopped madly all afternoon four our souvenirs. We caught the plane back to Texas at 9:20 pm local time and got home around 9:30 am the next morning.

Aug 16, 2000 - Anchorage, Alaska

We rented bicycles and rode about 18 miles on the Coastal Trail from 10 am to 2 pm. We saw beluga whales and two moose. We took the bus from downtown Anchorage to a shopping mall for an arts and crafts show (not very good). Had a reindeer sausage for lunch and shopped at the downtown shops. Ate dinner as the Glacier Brewhouse.
