We left L.A. at about 9am and after a layover in Las Vegasâ€”where I won $25 playing .05 slot machinesâ€” we were on our way to Anchorage.
We landed about 4:00pm in Anchorage and after a short cab ride we arrived at the little bed & breakfast that Beth found. It’s fabulous!
We really didn’t wait long to check out the town. We took a walk to downtown through the mall and ended up at Uncle Joes Pizzeria which was about a mile and a half away.
So far, we LOVE it! I am particularly fond of how green it is here and that there are NO palm treesâ€”just like in Seattle. It doesn’t get dark until really late. 9:30 – 10:00 pm you can still be outside with enough light to think it’s 5 or 6pm. As someone who needs very little sleep, I LOVE IT
