Having the day off yesterday, we first did our laundry and grocery shopping. After putting the groceries away it was time for lunch. As Len says when I ask what he wants it's "make it easy on yourself". Okay, Subway it is.
Many times we get the $5.00 foot long and split it. No such thing as a $5.00 sub in Alaska. Should have known!
I then suggested we visit the Eagle River Nature Center.
The Nature Center is at the end of a road in the process of being repaired. Once again, glad we are not fussy about our truck getting dirty. I still don't understand why we've bothered to wash it twice while up here.
The nature center has a very small visitor center with just a few things to see.
It's main focus is the various walking trails behind the center. The young man at the desk suggested the 3/4 mile path. He told us it is an easy walk with a small incline. We took his word for it. Sure! An easy incline for a 20 year old native Alaskan used to climbing mountains. Not such an easy incline for this old woman and a husband with back issues. But we did it. Taking advantage of a few of the benches along the way.
Worth the walk and we need the exercise.
Today the temps are in the mid 50's and a light rain. We have ribs cooking low in the oven. Leonard just said, let's do something. So, I will close now and see what we can do on a dreary day. Good to have three days off volunteering to check out the area. And rest our backs.
