JUL 3, 20 .. A VISIT TO THE ALASKA SODA JERK .. LET'S HAVE SOME FUN PATTI ..

One of the most popular events of the summer here in Alaska is the Alaska State Fair.

As with many similar events across the entire United States, Alaska has been hard-hit by the Covid-19 virus outbreak. As a result, our 2020 Alaska State Fair has been cancelled.

As a result, many of the State Fair vendors are without work because there will be no state fair this year. One in particular, The Alaska Soda Jerk, has moved their business into Anchorage having been invited to share space with a local Anchorage 'watering-hole'.

To check The Alaska Soda Jerk out and to give them some business, Patti and I paid them a visit the other day.

Enjoy our visit with us.

We begin with a view of The Alaska Soda Jerk from across The Old Seward Highway in the Southern (Dimond Blvd) part of Anchorage.




Now we will move in a little closer.



You can see our white Chevrolet Suburban in the crowded parking lot.


On a mid-week afternoon, we were pleased to see all of the support they are getting here in Anchorage.


Check out our fine summer weather!


Join me at the ordering counter.




We opted for a Mixed Berry Milkshake.


Our milkshake was fun and very tasty.


There you have it. Our fun visit to The Alaska Soda Jerk, down for the summer here in Anchorage.

An article in our local newspaper stated that The Alaska Soda Jerk's summer business here in Anchorage would not equal that of 12 days at the state fair.

JUN 30, 20 .. ANCHORAGE, ALASKA .. COOK INLET .. TURNAGAIN ARM

Here we are, at the halfway point of the year. 

As short as this Post is going to be, we at least wanted to post a photo or two to celebrate the end of June 2020. The end of the first six months of the year 2020. The year 2020 is now half over and we begin the road through the second half of the year. We are so blessed and so fortunate to live in such a beautiful place.


A few photos of the Turnagain Arm of Captain Cook Inlet here in Anchorage, Alaska.





"Dad. Oh Dad. Down here Dad. Look down Dad."


Nice huh? At least we who are living here think so!

JUN 26, 20 .. FLOWERS IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD

In our previous Post dated JUN 20, we showed photos of Hillstrand Pond, part of a lovely wooded area very close to where we live. Below is a link to that Post just in case you have not seen it.

http://bobbacaps.blogspot.com/2020/06/jun-20-20-day-of-summer-solstice-in-far.html

To get to Hillstrand Pond, we walk 15-minutes through our immediate neighborhood. This time of year the flowers that our neighbors, along with our Condominium Association, have so lovingly planted and displayed are just beautiful. So we decided to show some of them to you.

I want to stress that the flowers you see below represent only a small fraction of those in our development. We live in a very pleasant neighborhood.

We live in the Eastridge development of Anchorage.


Below are two general photos showing the road we walk along when we go to Hillstrand Pond.



Let's begin with photos of something that is very basic and yet very important to each and every occupant, their Mail Boxes.

All of them are adorned with flowers.







Now we will have a look at some of the other flowers along the road through our neighborhood.
































We really enjoy living here in our neighborhood.
