Sunny Days at Home

Saturday was a spectacular day.  Practically no wind and it got up to 77 degrees which broke the old record by almost 10 degrees.  I wouldn't be surprised if we broke the record high for the month of May.   It was a good day to hang out in the neighborhood.  Every photo in this blogpost was taken within 100 yards of the house.  Even the last one of Stuey in the kayak was taken directly in front of the house.

Stuey and Nora set up a lemonade stand in the yard and for a while there it was like a lawn party.  Neighbors dropped by for cookies and lemonade and stayed to talk. I made some chocolate chip cookies, which usually help sales significantly!

Meanwhile, two doors down from us we had a rare experience of seeing  a Raven who is from an Anchorage Bird rescue center. The Raven's handler was staying just two doors down from us-they were in town to do a presentation at the wildlife refuge.   The Raven is 10 years old and had an injured wing when she was just a few months old.

Then, it was his turn in the boat! :)
