Anchorage or Bust!

August 7th, 2010 · No Comments · Musings

We’re here! We were exhausted on Thursday night when we arrived. The time change is 4 hours from Massachusetts and by the time we touched down, we knew it. We had an 8 hour straight flight from Philadelphia. Fortunately, a pleasant seat mate; and we observed that everyone on board was congenial. Strangers passed the time with each other; everyone was patient with the children on board, and the flight attendants were attentive. And, after buying a dinner to carry on in the Philadelphia airport; we got a free dinner on board! When’s the last time that happened?

We are staying in a beautiful B&B for the first few days about 6 blocks from the tourist downtown. Yesterday we spent the day in the art/culture museum — lovely. And, in true Sharon & hubby fashion, walked miles!

And lest you think we are in a “city”: here’s a quote from a travel brochure: “Did you know there are more than 1,900 moose, 250 black bears and 65 brown bears in the municipality of Anchorage?” Of course, Anchorage has a park that is 1/2 million acres!
