August thoughts from Alaska....

Hi everyone - still enjoying the beauty and wonder of the 49th state. Just a brief posting as wi-fi is so iffy.

Wanted to share a very fun evening my daughter-in-law, Jena and I had last Saturday at the home of Alaska Art Experience.

Jena is 2nd from the left and I am 2nd from the right..

A group of us learned how to paint on silk scarves - Gina, our instructor, is an artist of many talents and loves to use silk as one of her mediums. We painted creekside with the sound of rushing water as our music. A perfect Alaskan evening...new friends, a lovely meal and a unique memory to bring home.

Our return journey begins next week - wish we could stay longer...

Just talked with my 91-year-old father last week about any places he may regret having not seen (he traveled a lot the last 10 years of employment). He named Alaska. Wish I could have taken him while he was still able to travel. I'd love to see it, too. This looks so fun!

Your few words painted a perfect picture of your evening Pat. I can imagine how lovely it must have been. The view from your RV.....amazing!
Have a safe trip as you head south. Will you be coming this way at all?
