A New Peek Into An Old Past

While I’m working on a new post — and 800 reasons as to why I haven’t posted lately — I decided there was no better way to fill your time than with some never-before-seen-photographs that I’ve been hoarding of this beautiful place I call home (Juneau, Alaska).  Don’t worry, your boss told me you can look at this while you’re at work.  You can thank me later.

The boat harbor at Auke Bay is fun to walk through.

A view of gorgeous Juneau from the Tram. It's a fun thing to do if you're not terrified of heights! If you are, might I suggest a bottle of booze? (Just kidding. Sort of.)

Echo Cove... a good place to not catch any fish!

I look happy, right? WRONG. Celebrating our anniversary at a restaurant where they lost our reservations, tried to make our family of 5 sit at a table of 4, where I had a 3 month old baby who wouldn't stop crying and insisted on being held, 2 boys who were being holy restaurant terrors, and exactly zero seconds of time to ourselves because we had just moved to town and knew exactly nobody. But don't cry for me, Argentina....
I look so so happy, right? WRONG.  Celebrating our anniversary at a restaurant where they lost our reservations, tried to make our family of 5 sit at a table of barely 4, where I had a 3 month old baby who wouldn’t stop crying and insisted on nursing, 2 boys who were being holy restaurant terrors, and we had not even an ounce of time to ourselves because we had just moved to town and knew exactly nobody. Didn’t even get a picture with the husband to celebrate this momentous occasion! But don’t cry for me, Argentina…. the truth is there’s always next year.

 

I love trees. So much!

The views at Eagle Beach just never get old. Ever!

The Northern Lights never get old, either.

The reflection at Auke Lake never ceases to take my breath away.

Trees... have I mentioned yet how much I love them? I have?
Trees take my breath away, too… or wait, trees give you breath?  Whatever.

 

You just can't make this stuff up!

Because.... star fish.

Would you believe this is along one of the trails here in Juneau?
