A sunny spot

My friend, Crystal, and I have taken to spending sunny days out by the river on this little hillside spot. It is a nice little spot to sit in the sun, read a book, and relax.
From this little spot, we have a nice view of the goings-on at the riverfront. Above you see the fuel barge delivering a fuel shipment. I wonder if the fuel prices are going to go up or down??? In the picture below, you see the regular barge delivering long awaited supplies. I have seen several NEW cars driving through town in the last few days, undoubtedly fresh off the barge.
Yesterday, we spent a part of our sunny day flying kites. It was fun! And something that I have never done in Bethel. I also started reading Animal Farm as part of Number 5 on the birthday list. I do have a dilemma with number 5, because Newsweek has taken the Meta List down. The website is gone and I never printed the list. So, I will have to choose a different list to work off of.
Anyway, this little hillside spot has become my sunny day staple for reading, thinking, contemplating, relaxing, and even kite flying.

I think it is wonderful that you are spending the summer in Bethel and exploring the many wonders of Alaska. Love reading about your adventures......
