Seen from my office, the tour buses in front of the Captain Cook collecting people and luggage to take them to the next stage of their journey. A few years ago, the companies switched out all of their colorful buses for herds of these white featureless beasts. I would worry about getting on one and suddenly finding that I was on my way to Patagonia rather than Palmer -- there's no way to tell from the outside.
A pickup in the Providence Hospital parking lot this afternoon (we were there to see a friend) with painted cutouts of military men.
Robin with a big insect for dinner -- I can't tell what it is. The wings look like a dragonfly's, but the body is much too heavy. Nonetheless, it looks that robin will be well fed.
People eating on the patio at the Millenium Hotel. Perfect weather for it -- a little cool, not many bugs if you're away from the trees and water.
Float plane doing "touch and goes" at Lake Spenard.
More bugs today -- this cloud of them is whirling above a patch of water, thick enough to be caught by the camera.
The nicest no-parking sign on Lake Spenard.
Red maple, green pine.
A month ago, all of these trees were bare, and you could see the mountains. Not complaining, just marveling at how quickly things change.
