On Friday, December 2, Stan and I left our house at 5:30 PM. Went to dinner and then drove to SeaTac to fly to Bethel Alaska for the weekend. We left SeaTac at 9:30 PM, arrived in Anchorage at 12:30 AM. Our connecting flight to Bethel was at 6:40 AM. Arriving in Bethel just before 8 AM. I did not get many pictures taken because baby, it was cold outside!! What I got are below.
|This snowman was standing in a yard of one of Cooper's friends. All of the white beyond is the tundra. AKA a field.|
|A barge on the Kuskoquim river. Size relationship is shown by the mobile home on top of the barge.|
|The frozen Kuskoquim River. One of Tricia's neighbors said he went out with a four foot auger and drilled into the river ice. He broke through right at the four foot measure.|
|These are docks that the fishing boats tie up during the fishing season|
|You see boats all over like this one. Once the river thaws, they will refloat it.|
The real reason for our trip though was because our grandson Ben had a few parts in the Bethel Theater production of Annie.
|Here he is playing the part of Mr. Bundles schmoozing Miss Hannigan.|
|In the song and dance rendition of New York, New York.|
|Another New York New York shot.|
|Holding the applause sign for the "live" audience.|
He also had an invisible part as a radio announcer.
|As President Franklin Delano Roosevelt|
