Welcome to my weekly update for September 12, 2021!
My husband and I shared a wonderful week with my sister. She flew home last night. We did realize that a lot of tours and excursions end on Labor Day in Alaska, so I don’t think she was able to visit as many places as she would have liked. But we did take a cruise around Kenai Fjords National Park, take her to the Alaska SeaLife Center, hike quite a bit, and revisit some of my favorite places like The Musk Ox Farm and the Reindeer Farm.

- A tufted puffin at the Alaska SeaLife Center
- The town of Seward as seen from across Resurrection Bay (See that mountain in the middle? That’s Mount Marathon. Racers run up and down that beast in “the toughest 5K on the planet” every 4th of July. I wouldn’t even consider hiking something that vertical, much less running it. Alaskans are a different breed of tough, that’s for sure.)
- Eklutna Lake is actually a gorgeous milky blue color but on this still morning, the fall colors reflected so vibrantly, it was impossible to see the color of the water. It’s beautiful either way.
- Fall color at Crow Pass

I got behind on my reading challenges that have monthly prompts in August but I’m getting back on track. I do need to find a book set in Africa though. I’ll probably check out Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe since it’s also on my Classics Club list. That might not happen this week because Isabel Allende’s work can slow down my normal reading pace. I’ll also check out a fun audiobook but I haven’t decided which title yet.
What did your week look like?
