No more workouts for me this week! We're traveling to Anchorage Alaska, Tuesday through Sunday night. Wife has family out there.
Sitting on a plane for six hours, then layover in Seattle for like 5 hours, then sit on another plane for 3+ hours. Arrived in Anchorage at ~3:30am: which was 7:30am my time. Poor boy was zonked. We all got to sleep pretty quick.
Slept in til 11! Went sledding in the afternoon, in Kincaid Park. So beautiful.
AM: the zoo. PM: more sledding, this time at Oceanview. View of the inlet, and a glorious sunset.
Earthquake! We had planned a day trip, but authorities said to "shelter in place". Sat around all day, played Scrabble, ate cookies. Later in the day made a grocery store run and stopped by the liquor store.
Three hours on a plane to Seattle. Spent the night there: walked around downtown, had a nice dinner. The Steelhead Diner on Pine St by the market is fucking fabulous. Food was great: more impressive was how they treated us. They couldn't seat us right away (two big parties coming in); they went way out of their way to be super nice to us. I highly recommend: they seem to be really good people. And as I said, the food was great.
Up at 5 to spend six-plus hours on a plane. Got home at a reasonable hour, like by 6p. Had a nice evening; a small buffer to ramp-up for the work week.
The 9yo was really great with all the logistics: plane rides, layovers, schlepping suitcases etc. Proud of him.
