Sunday was SUNNY, so I knew I wanted to get outside! I took the dogs downtown to a park and one of the many trails around town ~ this one was called the Coastal Trail cleverly enough because it follows the coastline. :)
We first stopped at Resolution Park, which is slightly misleading as it's not really a park...more like a viewing area...it does provide a great view of the Cook Inlet and the Alaska mountain range, but there is no grass or trees. It's marked by this statue of Captain James Cook, a great explorer and navigator who helped chart many far away places while in the Royal Navy.Snooze in Denver.
"Snow City Cafe" and they have GREAT breakfasts! I've been 3 times since I got here and each breakfast was delicious. There is always a wait, but they do allow you to call ahead to put your name on the list which helps cut down your wait.
I stopped by the Visitor Information Center just because it's so pretty ~ there are flowers everywhere throughout downtown...I picked up a few brochures with ideas for future weekend exploring as well. I'm definitely fortunate in that I can do all of the 'touristy' activities without having the time crunch that vacationers must deal with.
My final stop was on the way home...guess what I found? Awhile back, I'd read there was going to be a self-serve frozen yogurt place going in at the airport but they would only have 3 flavor options...well, this one is NOT at the airport...and they have 12 different flavors to choose from...their 'toppings' bar is not QUITE as extensive as some of the others I have seen, but that's okay...I was just happy to learn I have a fro-yo shop nearby!
the wildlife continues to be somewhat sporadic...either that, or they just are out and about really early in the morning before I am usually awake...
I was getting ready to let the dogs out the other night but noticed this little one hanging out in the yard.
And finally, only in Alaska...
with a rack on top... :)
