PRECIOUS MEMORIES



COLOURED GLASS BANNERS ON THE WHARF WALKWAY KETCHIKAN, AK PERHAPS.

With the celebration of American Independence Day coming up fast on July 4th,
our memories turned to our 2009 trip to USA and our Alaskan Cruise.
Ketchikan has made a feature of fish art
and I think it was that port where the boardwalk back to the ship was lined with banners
such as these.
We had a wonderful time,
so wonderful I was often too tired
to keep my travel journal up to date
and my photos remain unlabelled.


182 DAYS MAINLY WHEAT FREE - 10 DAYS OUT OF 30  EXERCISING


TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS FOR 2012:- 22 kg/ 48.5 lbs 

I came too close to that cheating fast day.

It has been a chilly if sunny day following a good frost. I climbed back into bed after getting half dressed this morning. I decided that was the easiest way to stay warm and....... We went to the library yesterday and I brought home 2 Dick Francis books. Easy reads and well written with enough mystery to keep me from putting the book down until finished. It must be winter. It seems ages since I've been able to do so much reading.

I dozed off a few times and finally finished getting dressed about 3 pm. I've had two meals and am drinking plenty of water. I'm not expecting to make my goal weight tomorrow morning.
