“Termination dust”

Alaskan slang for the first snow that marks the end of summer. We saw it on the mountaintops this morning, my last full day in Seward. How apropos.

Jan and I did a little fishing (no catching, though) and just enjoyed a relatively calm, sunny afternoon after a busy, wet week. He returned late last night from a successful moose hunt. Amy’s work included a crazy 32-hour shift at the ER. Grandma (Cindy, also up from Florida) and I tended to the kids and chores around the house and yard. Yet I still was able to get away for a few great day-hikes. (See previous posts.)

Tomorrow, I head back for a couple of days in Anchorage before flying home Tuesday-Wednesday. My, how quickly these six weeks have gone by! It’s been truly lovely here, thanks to my wonderful hosts and new friends.
