River's Edge

Today I went to a worship conference and a woman there, Margaret Feinberg, talked about meeting her husband in Sitka, Alaska, while at a B&B there. While buying some of her books, I told her husband that my husband and I were going on a trip to Alaska this summer and I'd have to look for a good B&B in Sitka. He looked something up on his iphone and told me to go to Ocean View. However, after looking at the map it doesn't look like we'll be making it there. Looks too far down for us.

I booked a place that looks great for Fairbanks. It's called River's Edge Resort and I booked a cottage by the river. It's fun finding places by rivers. Their website says you can fish for grayling in the river. I had never heard of grayling before but I guess they're a type of salmon. I love salmon - to eat. I wonder if we'll actually eat fish Randy catches or if he'll catch & release -- or if he won't catch any. Since we're staying in hotels I'm not so sure how this will work.

One thing I hope to do in Fairbanks is go to the University of Alaska Museum of the North. My dad said he (we??) went there back when we lived there.
