Note: these posts won’t be real time, but a couple of days delayed. (I need some rest, people!!)
Finally! We made it to Alaska.
We got in to our home away from home at Eagles Head Cabins in Sterling, Alaska.
We are exhausted, having had about 3 hours sleep out of 36.
En route to Sterling from Anchorage, I asked ThatManILove to stop at a service station so that I might, well, ummmm....yes, of course, go to the bathroom.
We saw several stations, but alas - there was no one home.
What the heck???
When we finally made it to our cabin, the property owner, Ron Maddox, came out. It was 10:30 p.m. Alaska time. He was telling us it was hard for him to stay awake, waiting up for us 'til 10:30 pm, and Steve and I looked at each other and started laughing.
THAT’s why no service stations were open! It was 10:30 p.m. and the sun was about 2 p.m. in the sky!
Duh. I should tell you that we’re smarter than the average bear - just not the ones who live in Alaska!
TMIL told Ron: “Here’s how it is: that sun up there is telling my eyes it’s time to put some meat on the grill for supper - but my body’s asking, “What the heck is going on here? I need sleep!”
Check out the properties where we'll be staying this week: They are amazing!!
In the morning, we’ll be halibut fishing. Yet another new experience for Janie!
It’s never boring around here!
