I had always been dreaming of visiting Alaska ever since I was a kindergarten kit as there was a kindergarten classmate boy who moved to Alaska.

After dinner on the day we arrived, I went to take a walk around while talkative American people were having a chat. It was after 10 pm but it’s Alaska at the end of June! Midnight sun season.

  1. So many wonderful moments and beautiful pictures! To be near to a wild animal is always a blessed moment. You were extremely near, wow! And you saw Orkas ๐Ÿณ, you lucky one. I love the other animals too, ๐Ÿฆ… and the cute otter and the birds. Alaska must be a dreamland destination ๐ŸŒŽ. The lodge looks cozy and comfortable. I would like to go there immediately ๐Ÿ˜ Thank you for showing! ๐ŸŒธAloha๐ŸŒธ

    1. Aloha FL friends.

      I didn’t know about the earthquake recently until I read your message๐Ÿ˜ตโ—๏ธ
      Fortunately, Hawaii was all right this time.

      I evacuated from the Tsunami warning a couple of times my life last 17 years and one of them was like 1:00 in the morning ๐Ÿ˜ฑใ€‚ใ€‚ใ€‚
      Animals are always a priority for sure…. then their food, treats, water.
      This is absolutely the dark side of beach life.

      By the way, I remembered that most of the people I met in Alaska, they from FL for some reason ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‚
      There are so many here in Oahu too.
      I guess you guys love Alaska and Hawaii!??
