Mt. Edgecumbe

Beautiful crisp day here. You can feel the change in weather, seems snow could arrive at sea level any day now. It's fun watching the level of snow creep down the mountains surrounding us. Mt. Edgecumbe in the background has been bare until about a week ago.

All good things must come to an end, or must they??

It has been a non stop, fun filled two weeks. I left Sitka for a quick visit to Everett, Cedar Wood my old school and many friends around the area, then on to San Francisco for the Nike Women's ½ (13.1 miles) Marathon. Back to Seattle for a short time to visit friends then participate in the Thrill the World event and dance to Thriller; this year there were approximately 250 zombies. We don't know if we broke the world record yet. Tomorrow I head home to Sitka where the weather has been beautiful.
It's been good seeing everyone, I had a great time but am ready to go home to Cape St. James and the Captain.

Many thanks to those of you who let me call your home my home. Jan and the girls, what a treat to see how they have grown. Patty who has my room waiting for me at all times. Toads who have a bunk at the ready and Denise and Grant who gave and gave and gave.
Thank you dear friends all of you.

Can you believe it???

A group of crazy friends decided to try and get into the Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco. We put together a team called The PEARLS entered the drawing (there are so many applications they now do a random drawing to see who can be in the marathon) and waited to hear. It’s been a long process, we are in, and as you can see we are now in the countdown mode.

One team member is actually flying to Italy from Minnesota first, where she will be a presenter at an international conference on genetics. Other members are from Seattle, Oregon, Wenatchee and of course me from Sitka!!! We girls are all going to “Run Like a Girl!!!”

Oh the real reason we did this….. at the end of the race we each get a Tiffany’s necklace designed specifically for the race.
