“Could I have the bill, please?” “Sure.” “Can I charge it to my room?” “Oh, no, we are not connected to the hotel.” I really felt like saying, ‘Oh yes you are, you pass by the Concierge, hang a right and you are in here!” But I bit my tongue in true British tradition. It wasn’t the sort of restaurant for a romantic dinner for two. And there was a really lively table of “ladies” dressed up to go to the town hall for a “pride” do! If you wanted a bit of milk with your coffee; see below.
We made lots of chums on the boat; Robert and Ann from St.Albans, of all places. This is where I had my first Saturday job at Freeman Hardy and Willis, selling shoes. Kent and Cece, from California; they rocked up at the restaurant last night just as we were finishing. Kent announced he was starving and at five to nine; I wasn’t surprised as we normally ate on the boat at 6-30 pm sharp. We had just finished and were ready to hit the hay. Steve and Alysson from California and the aforementioned Bruce and Betsy from Massachusetts, with a place on Cape Cod were all such good fun.
Breakfast in the connected but not connected restaurant and wearing that old “Treen” cloak of invisibility again, which really is important when as luck would have it you are not in a hurry to get to the airport! Should have realised why all the sport on TV, the clue was in the title. D’oah!
After opening my Father’s Day cards from my beautiful daughters ❤️❤️❤️ it was away to Juneau airport; so small, so sweet and so quiet.
Dear Simon Smith, once more pointing us in the direction of a camera shop in Anchorage, open on a Sunday! 😱 And your flight is leaving now. Upon landing we are constantly surprised by the number of wheelchairs waiting to ferry people off the plane; seemingly at least five or six every time we have landed.
The Ham and Swiss sandwich was not a sandwich as we know it Jim. They could have sliced it in half, surely? Hire car was obtained and this now stays with us until July 1st, when we drop it right back here in Anchorage. Away to the hotel and bags dropped in the room and “Lyft” car summoned to the photo shop. It was OPEN! Lovely man explained that he didn’t think it was a battery problem; had we tried paper round the lens……..yes. And tapping it with……..yes. Mary is now the proud owner of a Canon power shot! Such a happy bunny. Slightly better zoom than the Fuji but very similar and even lighter. Thank you Smithy; big drinks and hugs and kisses upon our return; and Mary will probably thank you as well. 😉
So our first ride in a Ford Pick up back to the hotel. A beer to celebrate the purchase and dinner awaits. Tomorrow off to Denali National Park. Must go, the battery for the new camera is charged!
