A very happy dinner with Mary still over the moon about her camera. Breakfast this morning and still a beaming face. I really must try to choose something apart from poached eggs and bacon but the bacon is to die for! A very nice waiter, let us sample “Biscuit and Gravy.” The gravy he explained was white sausage gravy; for breakfast? The jury is still out because the biscuit was a sort of scone but the ‘gravy’, which looked like porridge, blew your taste buds because it tasted like chicken. Scones and chicken sauce; don’t ask because I have no idea.
Must leave room to try that Smucker’s Concord Grape Jelly, next time. Remembering the plane flight yesterday, we were a bit puzzled by the seat belt signs being on and people still wandering off to the loo. I do believe on B.A. even today, this is still considered a hanging offence; but at least the stewardess realised the error of her ways, after briefing the folk near the emergency exit in the usual manner (you must be fit and able to get the emergency exit open) and then wandering off, only to reappear some five minutes later with the phrase, “I don’t know where my head is today!” and then swapped the man with his arm in a sling to a couple of rows back. She didn’t seem bothered by the stuff on the floor; again on B.A. this is unheard of, but if discovered, results in several lashes being administered.
Our Lyft driver last night tried to persuade us that a really good night out in Anchorage was a trip to the cinema because they let you drink beer and eat pizza. Yeah, right; spot on David just our most treasured pastime. 🥴🥴🥴 So farewell Anchorage and memories of Juneau and onwards to Denali.
We girded our loins for a spectacular five hour drive, stopping for a burger and salad for me and Mary had turkey and salad, in a really modern version of an old frontier lodge.
We arrived in good order at the Denali Bluffs Hotel; Mary spotting a Moose along the way. Tomorrow, we leave at six thirty a.m. 😱😱😱 for a tour in the Denali National Park.
The room looks good and can’t wait to grab a coffee, in the Perky Moose Pantry and Café!
Thanks for reading and goodnight Britain.
