Don left early in the morning for a fishing trip. I bought some breakfast snacks and ate on the observation deck. It was overcast and so there was no sign of Mt McKinley. Then I walked around the grounds taking photos of flowers (there were big Alaska lupines, huge white daisies and beautiful pansies) until the bus came at 9:00 to pick me up for the nature walk at Byers Lake.

Back at the hotel, we were off again with the tour group for a delicious dinner of ribs and salmon and a fun Alaska theater show. It was a comedy skit about Alaskan history. We had a great time.
You can see a selection of the photos I took at my photostream on Flickr.

It has been a while since I wrote. Early June I was focused on weeding thinning mulching and pre/deadheading the gardens before leaving for two weeks in Alaska. The house also needed to be left spic and span for the big annual party/picnic/family reunion that was to occur the day after we returned..........
June 19th we flew to Alaska for two weeks. Two weeks with no internet! It was a real vacation.
A photographers dream come true......... and something Don and I have always wanted to do.
Now I am back and getting all the photos out of the cameras. As soon as I have some of them edited I will start putting them up on Flickr and Facebook and writing more blogs to share all the fun.

Last week I had lunch with friends. We enjoyed a long lunch and visiting and then we went to see Trish Joseph's showing of Pastels and Pottery at the Little Yellow Frame Shop in Richland Michigan. I took lots of photos and they are now up on Trish's page in the Gallery of Friends section of my website: alicehuntstudio.com
Her pastels are vibrant florals except for one which is of a bowl of fruit. I love the bright colors and the almost Van Gogh movement of lines. Her pots are beautiful and represent her wide range of talents.
Trish has been experimenting with glazes and styles for many years and has perfected many distictive looks. Some are salt glazed, some are wood fired, others are fired in standard gas or electric kilns. Her handles are especially interesting and distinctive as well as her sculptural and carved designs.
Please check out the many photos of her work on my website under "Gallery of Friends"
