From last week—false outer point beach in Douglas. My phone was dead, so this shot is what rife took. My favorite beach.

Downtown Juneau evening walk. “Welcome to Juneau” sign on the cruise ship docks | 10:30pm dinner at the Warf (that’s mint ice cream “grasshopper” pie)

Perseverence Trail up the Silver Bow Basin, where the first mine in Juneau was constructed. It was warm! | Using the water filter for glacial run off. Probably not necessary, but it wouldn’t hurt. Also, it was delicious.

Whale Watching! The day was grey but still beautiful | Out on the water

We saw some amazing things, the whales were so playful and we saw them bubble net feeding, tail lobbing, and even two breaching whales right next to our boat! Unfortunately this is the best photo I snapped, but I was looking with my eye more than photographing anything.

Bedtime writing. We’ve been reading some of my childhood picture books as bedtime books too, so far we’ve read Space Case and Fog.

    So I’ve been following you for a while but not super-religiously, and at this point I don’t even remember where I originally heard about you. I think it was from some kind of feminist or sex-positive website. But I just saw this and I had no idea you were from Juneau??? That’s where I’m from!! Did you grow up there? I’m so confused!

      Hi Amy, yeah I did grow up here. I graduated in ’96 and have visited but haven’t lived here since, I’m home for about a month visiting and helping my mom. Did you go to the pride picnic today?

    Fantastic pics, S!

    Reminds this Aussie girl of my time in upstate NY (minus the whales, of course- hehe).

    Nevermind the hair product- you look relaxed & happy- that’s the important thing. Rife, too.

    What’s happening at Mom’s place with the reno/rearranging?
