Perfect Day

One of the rare gem-like days in Juneau - clear, sunny, and a day off.

We have Servas guests from the DC area so a drive to the Mendenhall Glacier, or what is left of it, and a walk out to the waterfall, followed by lunch at Eagle Beach. Then a stroll around the Jensen-Olson Arboretum, and then the Shrine of St. Therese.

Back home to bake the first rhubarb pie of the season. A short session of deck sitting, and then John grilled some flank steak, roasted some potatoes, steamed asparagus, and our good friends Mary Claire, sans Pete, and Dick and Candy in the little red surrey with the top down, arrived (thank you Mary Claire for the wonderful guacamole and chips!). The conversation got a little raucous, enough for John to forget the salad and the fruit, although reminded....

There was wine involved: Zenato Valpolicello, Salice Salentino, Kris, Los Cardos Malbec.....
