We made it into Fairbanks. It was a close one. It had been snowing in Brevig for the past couple days and the cloud cover was pretty low, both in Nome and in Brevig. But fortunately we did make it into Nome with only a small delay. Once we arrived in Nome we caught our connecting flight to Fairbanks. That plane had to be de-iced before we took off. It's the end of May Mother Nature! Our short flight into the interior made a world of difference in the weather. It is 55 degrees, not a heat wave by any means but very comfortable and everything around here is so green. Many lovely shades of green. It makes me happy.
Our friend Lesa picked us up at the airport and brought us to her house. Her family has been just great to us. They are feeding us, letting us borrow a car and are putting us up in their R.V. Right now their watching Harold so C.O. and I can get out a bit without him and later today are taking us on a boat ride down the river that runs through the city. Aren't they lovely people?

Harold is having a great time so far. There are so many new things for him to explore. Sometimes he sits in quiet wonder, which is a very unusual state for him. He is also working on eating his weight in fresh fruit. Here's a photo of him playing with the Meath Family Dog, Maggie.

As we start on our summer vacation and see all the time spread out before us, we realize why we are living this lifestyle. Can't beat two full months off together as a family.
