Summer Shenanigans

Well, it has been a long time since my last post! The summer was amazing in so many ways. I can't begin to describe the awesome wildlife encounters and all the amazing people I met. Now that the summer is over, I'm quite sad. I wish summer could last forever but I'm also excited for what the winter has in store. I've been doing the snow dance for a while, hope it works!

Our plunges have been quite successful so far. Here are a few photos since my last post. 

Out of all those, I would have to say September is our best one yet! 

So far the fall has been great. I'm about a week into my seven week captains course and I've learned so much already. I'm excited for my trip home in November. It's been way too long since I've seen my friends and family back on the East Coast. I miss them all so much and I know two weeks is going to fly by and I wish it could last longer. 

I have also been making jewelry quite often and have sold several things through my Etsy store. Jewelry making is something that I've always enjoyed, and I hope to do more of it! 

Anyways, here are just a few of my favorite photos from the summer.

Plunge Update!

I just realized I haven't posted the last couple months of the 2015 Plunge Challenge photos! Here is March and April! 

Beach Walk...

...with Winter!! She loves going outside but it's dangerous for a cat to run loose here. Next best thing? A harness and a leash and a cat that tolerates it!

March Light Show Round 2!

Monday night, I was once again mesmerized by those gorgeous dancing lights in the sky. This time, it took the #1 spot on my aurora sighting list! This was by far the best light show I've ever seen. I have no words for the pure joy and excitement I felt while looking up into the cosmos and being greeted with tie dye lights. Most of the time, you don't see reds at all. Reds and purples will show up in photos, but rarely to the naked eye. This time was an exception and wow, was it awesome! When the reds started showing up, you could probably hear us hootin' and hollerin' for miles! My friend Bryce took some amazing photos, and here they are:

What a wonderful zen moment.
Why not just kick back and relax?
Bryce, the best aurora photographer around!

March Light Show

The spirits in the sky came out once again for us last night, and man oh man was it one heck of a show! It was definitely in my top 5 aurora viewings since moving to AK. Thankfully my friend Bryce texted me the good news that the northern lights were dancing, and out I went to North Douglas to join the crowd of nature lovers. Lots of people were out enjoying the show. Bryce is an excellent photographer, and captured some great photos of the lights, along with some of me and my friends. 

I managed to take a few photos myself that turned out pretty good, and when I have a bit more time I'll post those here as well. 

Here are a few of Bryce's awesome photos...

My friends and I mesmerized by the lights.

Here is what I've been trying to get a photo of for a while! Headstands under the lights!
