Adult speed dating in valdez alaska
This week Tracy’s family moved into a larger apartment.
We weren’t there to help and Amy was out of town as well. It is comforting to know that our parents are fine and our adult children can actually do without us…who knew??
We drove through Anchorage and down around Turnagain Arm where we did not see even one eagle. We arrived at Quartz Creek at pm and found that site 38 was right on Kenai Lake. Ed was happy and kept repeating “life is good”…and “this is what I am talking about”!! Since leaving home, our GPS said we had driven 5,111 miles in 95.5 driving hours with an average moving speed of 53.8…not too shabby. Had soup and grilled cheese for dinner, watched the DVD “Up in the Air,” and sacked out.
Day 19, Wednesday, June 16 – Cooper Landing to Soldotna and back to Cooper Landing, AKWhen we got up this morning, the temp outside was 50 degrees and inside was 51…chilly. We haven’t seen the sunshine now in about five days.
We drove through Copper Center, an old mining town with a roadhouse dating back to the turn of the century. We stopped frequently to take pictures along the way of the Wrangle and Chugach Mountain Ranges and the Nelchina and Matanuska Glaciers. We are pretty sure our pictures won’t do it justice. Ed is really getting the hang of “grilling to perfection!
We arrived at King Mountain State Recreation Site (no services for ) at pm AK. ” We visited with folks from North Carolina staying in the campground, and headed to bed at pm AT.
The Gwin Roadhouse hasn’t been opened since the owner killed himself several years ago, but opened again for business on Memorial Day.One thing we noticed is that there was a huge ATT tower and station at Glennallen so quickly we checked our phones.Yep, we had service so we called home to find that everything was fine. They have a beautiful Visitor’s Center (log buildings built in 2002) with a theater and exhibit hall.Yesterday I got to see a bunch of travelers boarding buses to go off to Alaska for a two-week adventure by land and sea.Meanwhile, we still have our Anchorage cruise/tour group in Alaska, now doing the land portion of their tour, with Paula and Dan.
