One of my favorite places on earth is the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska. Just a few miles south of Anchorage Cook Inlet, and then Turnagain Arm flow together, carving a path between mountain ranges of immense beauty, and size.
There is something very special about the welcome you are given here, by the environment, and the people. We stopped at Moose Pass so Daryl could meet the people he will be flying with next week, and get the lay of the land. Stunning.

The old bookstore was a hodge-podge of new and old books, with little organization to it. The gentleman running the store talked to himself, and definitely could be considered a "character." Then there was the woman born in Grand Rapids who was transplanted here as a child, and now created jewelry and owned a lovely gallery downtown.
Art and "story" is very important in this community, and others around the state. Seward is the Mural Capital - with many beautiful murals gracing the sides of buildings throughout the community.
And now we sit in Starbucks in a local grocery story and get caught up on writing, and downloading Daryl's study materials for next week. Slow going...internet at the end of the road. For it truly is. The end of Seward Highway. And a little slice of heaven.
