Well everything is starting...the wedding madness! It is hard not to get caught up in all the craziness and I have only been engaged for less than a week. I am not sure how people stay sane through it all.
I was very happy to have my roommate and her friend ( who has been visiting from Washington) invite along to go on a long drive, they were going out to a restaurant that served really good Clam Chowder. It was way out in Girdwood which is almost an hour drive along the Turn Againarm, where I usually ride my bike. I of course had already eaten but began to get really excited to try this amazing chowder they were talking about. When we finally got there they had just served their last bowl for the evening. We were all disappointed, and instead went next door to get some really delicious ice cream.
Afterwards, we stopped at one of the view points were beluga whales are most often seen. It is not the season to see them but we were able to snap some photos of their replicas. This below is, as Jed would put it, my redneck shining through. I stayed on for 8 seconds....It was so SOOO cold there. the wind was blowing and it was in the mid-fifties. Not your typical June (well not my typical June). I am going back either tomorrow or Thursday to this point to see the tide come in it's called the Bore Tide. In this part of the tide comes in so quickly that it creates a wave sometimes up to six feet high. According to their little chart the most likely chance of seeing it will be in the next two days around 6:30pm. I think I will grab a beanie, gloves, a heavier coat and hot chocolate to sit and wait for the tide. Things are great here and I am keeping myself entertained, by riding statues of whales ;) I miss you all too much!


  1. it looks amazing not only the senery, but that you are riding that whale so good. I am glad that it did not buck you off!!! we miss you very much and love to hear your voice on the phone. It takes my mind off of you being three thousand miles away, and makes me think you are only in provo near BYU satium....

  2. I miss you too and am a little jealous of the wedding madness. It will end way too quickly, so enjoy every minute :)

  3. Good luck with the wedding madness. Let me know if I can do anything to help. The scenery is beautiful up there.

  4. oooohhhh! we want to come see the tide!
