Our friends took us camping at Kings River outside of Sutton north of Anchorage, Alaska. We went in their camper. It was a beautiful weekend. It was sunny but not too hot. We sat by the campfire and went for walks. We enjoyed watching the river.
Our friends asked if we wanted to go camping with them. We agreed to go because we have never been before and it sounded fun.
The first place they took us was the Girdwood Forest Fair. There people with flowers in their hair, people all dressed up and even pirates singing. We thought this place was pretty cool. As you follow the trails through the forest you will find all kind of booths. There was really a lot of people though.
Then we stopped for a nice brew at Girdwood Brewery.
We found a nice place to camp by a pond. The camper was really comfortable and scenery was nice.
I got to play with the twins. That was lot of fun. They are really cute.
The next morning we packed up after breakfast. This camping stuff is fun. I hope they invite us again.
We will say Good-Bye for now and hope to see you soon.
We set off with our friends this morning heading for the Golden Circle again. It was rainy and very foggy.
David and Cindy actually knew where they were going because we ended up at the Geyser.
After we checked that out we went into the shop and we got to drive a tractor around the store. That was pretty cool.
Next stop was Gullfoss Waterfall. It was huge and fast. It was the most amazing waterfall we had ever seen.
Our next stop was very disappointing to us. It was Fontana Geothermal Baths and we were not allowed in. They said we would fall apart if we went in the warm water. They even said our colors would run. We did get to look at it though.
To make up for it though we got some nice beer at the brewery.
After that we were all pretty beat because we started off early this morning. We can’t wait to see where they take us tomorrow.
Well we started off this morning with our friends. We were not sure they knew where they were going but they said, “Sure we do. We are going to the Golden Circle.” We never saw a golden circle but we did have a good time. We headed out on our road trip. We saw beautiful waterfalls, great scenery, wonderful clouds and drove through a tunnel under a fjord.
When we got back to the apartment we found out that we never did get to the Golden Circle, but fun was had by all anyway.
We then decided to go to downtown Reykjavik and have a beer.
The bartenders were so pleasant that we left them a tip. Then we all walked home discussing what we would do tomorrow.
Our new friends have taken us to Scotland with them. They took us everywhere they had gone. They even had us spend time with their friends there. We got to go to all over the highlands and see many new things. We went to a distillery, brewery, beach and even a castle. We even ate fish and chips, went for hikes in the woods, drove heavy equipment and hung out with Sam. We went to this really strange place where there were socks and other clothing hanging all over the trees. We got to spend David’s 69th birthday with him and toasted him with whiskey. We have to make this a short one because we are heading to Iceland with our friends, after saying goodbye to our new friends.
The flat ole hippies had a great time today. They spent most of the day at the Vatican museum where they looked at all the beautiful art. Ending the day at a restaurant with a nice meal and a glass of beer.
