  • I met this lovely arctic tern family at the Potter Marsh near Anchorage in Alaska. The two babies still have their very fluffy feathers to keep them warm and the parents are keeping a close eye on them. With their black cap, they almost look like little pirates or someone from the CIA โ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿคฃ
    .
    Interesting facts:
    You must read this โ€ฆ These little guys are the true frequent fliers of the all birds on earth. This is no joke, during their lifetime (~ 30+ years) they fly so many miles that they could fly to the moon and back three to four times ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ!! Each year they migrate from the Northern Arctic to spend the winter in Antartica and then all the way back again. They fly on average an amazing 56,000 miles during their migration. Not sure why they donโ€™t hang out in some warmer areas... most likely because of their frequent flier program ๐Ÿ˜. .

  • I highly suggest taking a look at the moon tonight! Simply amazing and impossible to do it justice through a photo.

  • The Girdwood Chalet can comfortably sleep ten in beds and conveniently, thatโ€™s just what this table can seat! Whether you choose to eat out at one of the excellent restaurants in the area or dine in a la homecooking, this table has room to serve up a feast. Or perhaps just a good card game. ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿƒ #VRBO #vrboalaska
