Everyday heaven. I consider myself a tourist in my own state! I never ever tire of the splendor that I am privilaged to view so regularly.
We took an hour ride one day out to Chena Hot Springs. A favorite spot!
There is a beautiful rock pool, and HOT HOT water to soak in. Ahhhh.
Mom loved the cool water fountain in the middle. So did I. The "Rock Lake" got sooo hot, you could hardly stand it in some places. The cold water raining down on your head felt SOOO refreshing!
We did a lot of laying in the sun! It was so very beautiful out, and hot. We spent as much time as possible getting tan.
We went to the park a lot, the one we call Hot Licks Park, because its near Hot Licks icecream stand. The icecream is made from Creamer's Dairy. Its so yummy. The girls played on the swings, after finishing huge cones with names like Prudhoe Bay or Nanook's Nosh. But, they had some competition for the swings. Somebody kept beating them to them. Guess who?
We all sure had a blast. We kept deciding to stay "one more day" until I think my poor husband was planning to fly up and DRAG me home! Finally we heard enough reports that the weather at home had taken a turn for the better, and we packed up and headed home. We were reluctant to leave, but made a TON of fun new memories to sustain us until next year! Bye Fairbanks! Love ya to bits!
