The sky was a brilliant blue, the sun was shining, and I wanted to visit Arness Dock again. I mentioned it to mum and she opted to go, too. The clouds were incredible billows of cotton--I had talked to my friend, Kel, and it was hard to believe Soldotna had rain!

Leaves have been changing and falling fast this last week before the official start of fall. I've wandered around the Pipeline Road and other places out north reveling in the amazing world of a very short Alaskan Autumn.
OK, this is just a fun photo of a truck in the Safeway parking lot--Not bad for a Chevy!
Two of my tree friends. The tall one is Clint (remember Clint Eastwood singing 'I talk to the trees' in 'Paint Your Wagon'??) and the tiny one in the lower right of the photo is Stumpy. If you look close, you can see faces on each of them. I will go out after this windstorm and see how Clint fared. He's pretty tilted...

I went back to the Sr Center and got a better photo of the plaque in front of the flags.
This poor car! When it went off the traveled road onto a less traveled dead end, it stopped. Never to go again.

The Nikiski Senior Center Flagpole Dedication, on September 9, 2016, had some fun visitors. The Nikiski Fire Dept brought one of their ladder trucks, Mike Chenault spoke, there were members from the police department, the VFW, and Mrs. Bostic's class showed off historical flags and sang God Bless America.
I wasn't able to get a good photo of the plaque as it was revealed and I forgot to get one later. It stands in front of the three poles and it is gorgeous!
To the oceans, white with foam--
God bless America, my home sweet home-
