I’m Off To See The Moose!

My "bestie", Julie, lives in ANCHORAGE, ALASKA, and since I had most of this upcoming week off due to the (cancelled) cruise of 2018, I decided to take advantage of the time off and run away to somewhere warm.  Warm at heart, that is…although it looks like The Final Frontier will be above zero next…
