Bright lights, Big City?

 I wanted to share some of the pictures I took last Friday
 on my journey to the Big city.....
 It was a beautiful day......
 Look at that calm water.

 Anchorage I would not say is a beautiful city.....
 It does have a few charming spots though....
but you do have to look
for them!
Here are a few treasures I found.....
Love the yellow cameo $1.50
couldn't believe it.....

It hit 60 degrees yesterday, it was so beautiful....
I hope your having amazing weather also!

Happy Weekend!

  11. oh anchorage, anchored down in anchorage.
    for fear of sounding a ittle cheezy, although it's one heck of a poetic song still, after all these years..!
    thank you so much for the mountain and lake pictures! they are stunning. love the format you have shown them in, they are worth it to be bold and big.
    so you enjoyed yourself then?
