Well Alaska has had one heck of a summer... record breaking heat and long spells of sunshine. Mel, Tom, and Rose picked an excellent summer to visit Smiley

The 4th was the one day it rained, so we didn't do much :-(

But we took advantage of the sunshine to do some hiking/sightseeing-

Wildfyre - you're making me want to move to Alaska so bad! The weather, the views, the salmon. It's Cornwall but BIGGER!

Oh my goodness... I just realized I haven't checked in for at least a week!  So sorry, everyone!  (I teach at a year-round school, and our new school year starts on Monday, so it's been crazy trying to finish up this past year while getting everything ready to start the next one!)

time for our next challenge!

How about "strangers?"
I can't remember who suggested it, but for those of you who aren't afraid, go ahead and ask a stranger to pose with your LV!  It can be on a park bench, in a restaurant, on da bus, whatever!

Wildfyre - you're making me want to move to Alaska so bad! The weather, the views, the salmon. It's Cornwall but BIGGER!

Hehe Well to be fair I'm only showing it's good side Smiley Not the 1.2 Grizzly Bears per square mile that put a bit of a dent in a lot of hiking trips, the outrageous cost of everything because we live on an island, the non stop rain that comes with living in a temperate rainforest, etc.

I was worried you'd be a bit irritated with me for the salmon photos. I didn't even think about how Rose hates to harm anything until days after I posted them. It's so much a part of life here I guess it just didn't even occur to me. I'm sorry  Undecided She was a good sport, and doesn't seem to be holding it against me. I promise no fish slime touched either of the LV's.

We have a few big trips planned for August, some really exciting stuff Smiley Possibly a trip to Washington state the end of this month as well.

Hope everyone is having a blast with their LV's!

I think that as long as you ate them, she'll understand. Either way I don't mind - like you say it's part of life for you and that's what I want to see, Rose can go sulk in a corner somewhere if she doesn't like it Wink that'll teach her some tolerance.

So Aussie has been in Kos (Greece) for a few days now, I've just talked to mom and she says they all went to a bike trip along the coastline today and saw some monuments and the Tree of Hippocrates. I quite envy Aussie Smiley They are coming back on Thursday.

So, things are getting somewhat back to normal after our big move from an apartment to a house. I still can't find any of my dishes, or half of my things, but I am sure it will all turn up as we unpack. I DID find my laptop, so wanted to post a few pictures of Anuenue!

Not a stranger, but certainly strange! Anuenue riding the MAX in Portland. That is my strange brother, his wife, and my mommy in the background.



Hanging out at the Saturday Market in Portland



Anuenue hanging out with the dog with the Waggiest Tail in Eugene, Oregon! Loki, Anuenue and I went to Bark in the Park in May. We did a 1 mile walk with dogs, and then entered the Waggiest Tail contest. Loki won by crowd applause, and he was excited to celebrate his victory with Anuenue.



Here is Sluggo, the Eugene Emeralds baseball mascot. He was enjoying Bark in the Park festivities. We will be seeing more of him at the end of July, when we go to the annual Dog Days at PK Park baseball game, to benefit Greenhill Humane Society.



At the end of May, we went down to Grants Pass to visit my family. Each year they have Boatnik, a 4 day long celebration with a carnival, boat races, and more. Anuenue enjoyed watching the boat drags up the Rogue River:



The view from my parent's back porch never gets old. We had great weather all Memorial Day weekend.



We went to Boatnik one evening, and got some great views of the Rogue River at sunset.



Not "For Sale" anymore! This was the last day this sign was in front of our house. The next day, they removed it! I was hoping for a "Pending" sign, but they just removed the whole thing!



Things have somewhat settled down for us for now, so hoping we can get out and explore a little more soon, but wanted to share some of our adventures since Ive been in and out of internet service and super busy the past month.
