Girls Arrive in Alaska
The girls and I arrived back in Alaska around 2:15 a.m. Monday morning. We were glad to get here but were exhausted. Made a quick trip through McDonald's and then went straight home to rest. We slept a little later Monday morning due to our jet lag. We did get up around 11 and I was thrilled with the 40 degree temperature difference from Tennessee. I'm not sure if we even hit 60 degrees on Monday. It did sprinkle rain a bit so we stayed inside and rested. Kind of a lazy day. Today we did get out and about. We had a few errands to run and enjoyed lunch at Paris Cafe. Olivia and I cooked a delightful dinner of halibut and chips. This was halibut we had in the freezer not this one. Greg just caught this 40 lb. halibut over the weekend. After eating, Greg walked with us to get a few souvenirs in the downtown shops. There was a slight breeze and we all had jackets on. Seems the girls haven't quite gotten used to the cooler temps yet. They did enjoy looking at all the lovely flowers in the city.
