Alaska Scottish Highland Games

The day we have been waiting for the Alaska Scottish Highland games is here. We went with Bill,Jan and Glen,Marsha weather is looking great at high of 68 degrees for the day. There was lots of food venders craft booths children's amusements . There was  a high percentage of the men who wore kilts there were celtic dancers we watched heavy hammer events weight for height events. this was shaping up to be very interesting day. Events were stretched out for a bit so after a while we decided to go get lunch at the Noisy Goose and sit down for a while. Lunch was great we really went to check out the pie and we did leave with lemon cream cheese pie and so delicious. Ok time to get back to the highland games across the street. Weather is still holding up stayed till about a couple more hours. We headed back so we could start making plans for tomorrow when we leave the Elk's Lodge. When we got back there was an event going on at the lodge for the handicap or special needs they had these kids on boats, jet ski's and kayaks they looked they were having the best time. What a great day everyone seemed to be having the best time.

these lady's did a good job dancing.

Reindeer In Palmer,AK

We made plans to meet 2 couples at the Reindeer Farm at 10:00 so Bill & Jan and Harry and myself jumped in the truck and headed down the road. Of course the weather is not working with us, rain and clouds all around us. I thought the tour would be canceled silly me and the others told me not a chance of that happening. I have to say tour guide very informative and we were all glad we did the tour. Some pictures for you to see. Next lunch out with our new friends they came from Florida Roger & Sharon and Robin & Janice we had a great time over lunch. We decided to cut the day short because of the rain it was so messy.

The day started out beautiful no rain yes. Our first stop Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Museum where we started with a video on the dogs and how they are trained and cared for.  What a great find this is so intresting next we stepped outside and go for a ride on the sled. Moving on we tried the Museum of Alaska Transportation & Industry we arrived and decided nope we didn't think this place would hold our attention so we moved on. We found a Farmers Market some produce and handcrafted items weather was beautiful and just being outside was great.Our final stop Wal-mart for a few items that were needed. And back to the rigs to make arrangments for 3 more nights we will be leaving Sunday morning.
