Fun day!

Saturday was a good day.
We got out of bed and I just felt like flying, and actually doing something useful with the plane instead of just burning gas...
I called up my friend Sean (that's his Tripacer in the pics) and we went back and forth trying to decide where to go. Eventually we settled on Hoonah, because it is close and he has a Jeep stashed there. But what to do when we got there? How about a drive out the road in the Jeep, followed by a short hike to get to a sandy beach at Spaski Bay? Sounds good! So we gather the dog, lawn chairs, marshmallows and hot dogs and set off for a day on the beach!

We had a great time cooking hotdogs over the fire, flaming marshmallows, throwing sticks for Noni, and just watching the world go by.

We also got some great air-to-air shots of each others planes as a bonus.















Moose!

You always hear the stories about Moose in "urban Alaska".
Well, they are true. I see moose almost every time I go to Anchorage, just walking around town.
This last week I saw two, one by the airport and this one just outside the hotel I stayed at. Amazing how close she let me get to take her picture...
