Here's what we've been doing that took me away from work on my quilt and other projects...we visited ALASKA!! This is something that I've wanted to do, oh, forever. DH has been there many many times for work, but not recently, so this trip has been anticipated for about 20 years!
We managed to land in Anchorage on the Summer Solstice, so as you can probably imagine, the entire city was going wild...in a good way! The Anchorage Market and Festival runs all season, but everyone was especially bright and cheery, albeit a bit bleary-eyed, when we walked through just after opening on Saturday, June 22. We didn't have a lot of time to spend, unfortunately, because we were on our way to hook up with our fellow passengers for our inner passage cruise. But I do have to tell you about one vendor couple that we met.
