It is April and that means the A to Z Blog Shallenge has begun. This year my theme is Travel. I am going to be talking about places I have been and places that are on my bucket list. Wish me luck. Since today is the letter A I am going to pull from my bucket list and do a wish trip. I am going to kick my red sparkly shoes and say...."there is no place like Alaska!" I cannot remember a time I have not wanted to visit Alaska, the last of the wilderness frontier. When I was young my father used to read me stories of the men who went to Alaska to settle it. We used to talk about going there one day and I collected information about Alaska for years. Our trip never happened....but it still has not killed my desire to go. Now I want to go with my father beside me in spirit. I would rather go there than take a Caribbean cruise. I want to see the glaciers, the eagles, the whales, the mountains, the culture, the towns, the moose, the people....yep I pretty much want to see it all. I have friends and family who have all been and everytime they return and tell about their travels I can feel a burning in my soul to see it for myself. It is the only one of the 50 states I have not been to. I think I am due, don't you? So here are some photos my friends have sent to me over the year....of their trips.
I have many others but these are my favorites. I hope someday to take my camera and shoot my own photos of this gorgeous countryside and chalk another place off my bucket list. Happy April Fools Day to you all! See you tomorrow with the letter B.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
