Good morning, intrepid founding Bettys!
I couldn't help but share some pictures I took this last week when my work required me to be in Alaska for five days. Alas, I was stymied in my efforts to take many Betty pictures because I was by myself and had my books on my work iPad, which is very heavy to hold at arm's length when one is trying to also take a picture with the other hand! But it was a beautiful (and very very busy!) trip, and I thought of you all along the way... so here is Betty in the Wild - along the highway south of Anchorage to Seward, and in my hotel on Kodiak Island. I just had to bring Caroline's Waterloo north with me!
It was utterly gorgeous and the pictures don't do it justice, so of course I tried to sneak a few more in for posterity's sake. I drove from Anchorage to Seward (which was still rather flooded, which of course made for an interesting drive... it would have been much nicer with someone along to drive me in a great socking Bentley, instead of a subcompact rental car!), spent a few busy days there, then went back to Anchorage for more meetings, and onward to Kodiak before returning home. It was so busy I only had time to read Mrs. Neels on the plane! Still, I can't wait for my next trip north... and I'll have to stock up with more books before then!
But I wanted the Bettys to know I was thinking of them on the trip! I wonder, is this the furthest North a Betty in the Wild has gone so far? Hurrah, we're spanning the globe!
Moving right along,
