So I've always been intrigued with various oddities:
-I'm obsessed with Ireland
-I'm obsessed with Bed and Breakfasts
-I love whale watching
-I think I'd like to try spelunking
-I like Jazz music and actually think I have a nice Jazz voice
-pumpkins make me happy
etc. That's not really a list just and odd bunch of facts. Larry and I put together a list of ten things we would like to do before we died. Not surprisingly since we are so alike we had a lot of things in common. One thing that he had on his list that I did not was to visit Denali park after the wolf cubs have been born. (This was ALLL pre Palin, so don't go there). I immediately needed to know more about it. While we were on the phone I was looking at the Denali state park website and checking out various other websites of places to stay and things to do and I am officially hooked! Since then I signed up for a B&B newsletter, which would alert me to hot deals in certain areas that you are interested in. They've been sending me some great deals which are just absolutely breathtaking. I mean Alaska really is a beautiful place...as long as you're not going during their summer (Mid May -Mid August) I don't do mosquitoes. There are so many things we want to do, many of which are listed above. I would love to take Larry Whale watching. I've been off the east coast when I was visiting New Brunswick. Then they have this tour where you can take a helicopter ride and see Black bears catching wild Salmon and playing by the rivers, and countless countless other activities. Including of course if we can, seeing the wild wolf cubs.
So I sigh a little at all of the beautiful B&B's that are sent to my inbox and dream about our Alaskan vacation!
