Thought I would try to do some updates of our trip to Alaska.
We left Jackson on schedule at 2:15 p.m. on Monday June 1st. Arrived in Atlanta right on time and headed out to Salt Lake City. Ran into some rain and T-storms and were held up about an hour. Finally headed to Anchorage and touched down about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday morning. It was still light! I guess it will be this way our whole trip never really gets dark. June 21 is the longest “day” of the year.
We are renting an RV this year. (As mentioned in an earlier post we are here mainly for the birth of Brent and Bregitte’s first baby.) So we spent the first night in the parking lot of Great Alaska Adventures. At 8 a.m. we underwent orientation on operating our new “home” for the next little while. We are staying at the Golden Nugget rv park. It is only a couple of miles for B&B’s house and from the hospital.
We took a little excursion up to Flattop Mtn. Quite a view of Anchorage and the surrounding area. It is a beautiful day. We are going out to eat in a bit. Brent and I may go fish a local lake they stocked a couple of week ago. Will post more later.
Our fishing trip was interrupted by the news that Bregitte needed to go to the hospital! Brent and I loaded up the canoe and headed home. They quickly put their stuff together and headed out. About 12:30 a.m. the 3rd Bregitte’s due date we got the call that the baby was breech and they were going to due a c-section. We got the hospital about 1a.m. and other family members began to arrive. At 2:03 a.m. Miss Rosemary Lane was born! It was a great moment. She is a beautiful little (6lb 5oz 17 ½ inch) girl. Mother and child are doing fine. Brent did a great job and really took charge. I will try and post some pics along with this report.
June 4 – 5 Updates
Thought we would up date with a few new pics of the star of the show.
Gail and I took a few hours and headed south to Girdwood and Whittier.
