Bears!

Happy Memorial Day everyone!

I sort of feel like I won the lottery this weekend because the weather has been phenomenal and we have had company. Having visitors is the best…especially when they are super cool, they are your family or their name is Patrick. That.Is.A.Bingo.

Yesterday we went to Fortress of the Bear. It is a local attraction that is home to rescued bears. I was a hesitant about taking our guests there because I had never really visited the place myself and did not want to get stuck in a cheesy tourist attraction. You guys. We had such an awesome time and it was the perfect day for a drive out there. The bears were amazing and we enjoyed chatting with the caretakers.

It was a wonderful time! Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!

Cheers!!! πŸ™‚

  1. Oh I love Fortress of the Bears!! Visitors love it! Those bears put on a great show and if you go when the salmon runs are peaking the eagles are abundant there and they steal the fish that the caretakers throw to the bears, they just fly in and swoop the pieces of salmon. Great picture op!
    I love reading your blog and keeping abreast of the happenings in Sitka!
