SawFest 2008

Terry and I went to the state championship chainsaw carving competition on July 19 at 41672 Sterling Highway near Soldotna. We were amazed at the artistry these people created with a chain saw.

We did not meet any Boomer friends but when Karen Sweeny called on Monday, we found out that we were both at the chainsaw festival a couple of hours apart. She and Don were in Anchorage and wanted to visit. We met at the Moose Lodge, where they are parked, and had a delicious dinner. It is so much fun to visit with RV Boomers. They speak our language. We even got more information about Newfoundland for our anticipated trip in 2009. I made a joke about going home before dark. We had such a good time that it was eleven pm before we left for our RV in Eagle River. Yes, it was still light outdoors.

Darlene, thanks for great pix of Alaska! We had seen the Orthodox Church you visited, and we also saw dipnetting when we were in Alaska in 2005, but the rest of that was all new to us.

By the way, it didn't take half an hour to read, as you had warned us it would!
