FISHING
HELLO TO ALL IN GEORGIA,
WOW!!!! I JUST LOOKED AND THE LAST TIME I WROTE WAS OVER A WEEK AGO. A LOT HAS HAPPENED SINCE THEN. HOPE I DON'T FORGET ANYTHING AND CAN CATCH YOU UP ON THIS ADVENTURE.
WHEN WE LEFT TOK ALASKA WE WENT TO VALDEZ. THE DRIVE INTO VALDEZ WAS JUST BREATHTAKING. THE MOUNTAINS AND YES, THE SNOW. THE WATER FALLS FROM THE MOUNTAINS. THE DRIVE WAS AWSOME!!! IT WAS COLD IN VALDEZ. IT IS JUST A SMALL FISHING VILLAGE THAT IS REALLY STILL ASLEEP. NOW MUCH OPEN THERE. I THINK BY THE END OF MAY EVERYTHING WILL BE ROCKING. SOME OF THE CAMPGROUNDS WERE NOT OPEN AND THEIR WATER STILL FROZEN. WE STAYED IN VALDEZ FOR 2 DAYS. DWIGHT WENT TO A FLY IN AT THE LITTLE AIRPORT. HE HAD A WONDERFL TIME. THE PLANES HAD REAL BIG TIRES . NOT LIKE OUR PLANES AT ALL. WE LEFT VALDEZ AND HEADED FOR PALMER. PALMER IS NOT FAR FROM ANCHORAGE. WE STAYED THERE 2 DAYS. RODE AROUND THE AREA AND JUST ENJOYED THE PEACE AND QUIET. THEY HAVE A STORE OUT HERE CALLED FRED MEYER. IF IS ON THE IDEA OF WALMART. SOME ARE MUCH BIGGER. HARD

TO BELIEVE. THEY SELL CLOTHES COMAPARABLE TO BELK. THE GROCERIES ARE KROGER AND APPLIANCES AND HOME WARES ARE BETER BRANDS. I HAD A WONDERFUL TIME!!!!!
WE LEFT PALMER AND HEADED FOR SEWARD. STAYED THERE 2 DAYS. TOURED THE TOWN AND STILL JUST A FISHING VILLAGE. WENT TO A GLACIER AND WALKED RIGHT TO THE BOTTOM . IT WAS JUST BEAUTIFUL. SO MUCH TO SEE AND NOT ENOUGH TIME. WE WERE THEN OFF TO NINILCHIK. DWIGHT WAS TO FISH ON FRIDAY AND HE GOT BUMPED. HE DID GET OUT ON SAT. AND HAD A WONDERFUL TIME.. CAUGHT FISH!!!!!!! SAW LOTS OF EAGLES AND TRIED TO RIDE ON THE BEACH WHERE THEY THROW THE FISH PARTS AND WE GOT STUCK IN THE SOFT ROCKS AND SAND. HAD TO GET PULLED OUT!!! WE HAD STOPPED IN SALDOTNA AT FRED MEYER AND BOUGHT A FREEZER TO PUT IN THE MOTOR HOME. IT IS RIGHT BY THE TABLE!!! HOPE WE CAN FILL IT UP BEFORE WE COME HOME. WE ALMOST DIDN'T BUY IT BECAUSE OF A TRIP WE TOOK TO VENICE, LA. ONE TIME IN THE PAST. I'M SURE SOME OF YOU REMEMBER THAT TRIP. ANOTHER ADVENTURE FOR THE MCCOLLOUGH FAMILY!!!!!!!!
WE STAYED IN NINILCHIK

BUT IF YOU HAVE EVER BEEN TO THE KEYS, THEN YOU CAN IMAGINE WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE. JUST FISHING VILLAGES ALONG THE WATER. BOATS EVERYWHERE EVEN IN YARDS AND IN VACANT LOTS. DON'T THROW IT AWAY YOUMIGHT NEED IT ONE DAY.
WE WILL PROBABLY STAY HERE A FEW DAYS AND THEN SET OUT ON ANOTHER ADVENTURE. NOT SURE WHERE.

Who is that old man in the picture
Whos the old man in the picture with a beard standing beside fish? I knew that it couldnt be Dwight because he never has caught fish! Have a good time, I love you (not Dwight)! Jay
