Alaska Bucket List

image

Hi Friends,

Monday has flown by for me.  How about you?

So, you know how you’re planning a trip to Alaska next summer, right?  Right.  😉  Well, you will want to visit The Bake Shop in Girdwood, Alaska, for sure!  The food and surroundings are fabulous and it’s less than an hour from Anchorage.  Plus the scenic drive along the Turnagain Arm {of Cook Inlet} is a beautiful bonus!

I am going to let the pictures do most of the “talking”, but I have to say that my favorite things to order are the delicious and savory soups (with a homemade roll), and their amazing BLTs!  But, really, I haven’t had a bad meal there ever.  If you’re not sure about the soup, just ask for a little sample.  They are happy to oblige.

And then there’s the flowers and the view.  Both are incredible! Not to mention hiking, biking and hang gliding right next door! {And of course awesome alpine and Nordic skiing and snowboarding in winter. }

So keep saving your pennies and put Alaska and The Bake Shop on your bucket list!

Joyfully,

Jackie

Remembering the View – Sunset Late Fall 2012

Hi Friends,

I snapped these photos late last Fall while returning home from a weekend trip with my hubby.  When I uploaded them I was stunned at how beautifully my cell phone camera had captured each scene.

These photos were all taken between Girdwood and Anchorage on the Turnagain Arm.

No, Alaska’s beauty does not disappoint.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Joyfully,

Jackie

The Scenic Route

Hi Friends,

It seems to me that every road in South Central Alaska is the scenic route.  I have lived here for 30 years and I still cannot stop taking pictures every time I go on a road trip.  Here are just a few I took the last time we headed home from Seward.

Alaska still takes my breath away!

Joyfully,

Jackie
