Views From The Living Room


I'm sure everyone saw that huge moon a few nights ago - out here it came up right between Newhall and Split Top mountains. The top picture shows my favorite tugboat, the James Dunlap, pushing a big cargo ship to the APL dock to be unloaded. For a sense of scale, the tugboat is 100 feet long . . . . both shots were taken right out my living room window this week.

Sis, there are hardly any trees out here, I'm sorry. No one really knows why, maybe it is just too windy. You're still going to come see me though, right?? :o)

As for great views, they are all over the world. Mine might be a bit easier to find but there is beauty every where . . .

You sure know how to capture the beauty around you though. It makes me think though. You have been all around the US and other countries as well, and still you choose to come back here to Alaska to live, and show the scenery off to everyone. Of all places, and I got to live here most of my life. Pretty cool

Zack, Anchorage is a beautiful city to live in . . . sometimes the beauty comes right to you and sometimes you have to work for it. One of the most amazing bull moose I've ever seen was right in the parking lot of AISD not far from your place. Of all the states, Alaska and Maine are tops in my book . . . love you.
