Taking some time to breathe

Some Sky

Kate and I have one more week of science camp. The last three weeks have been 80-90 hour weeks for both of us and we are finally in a place where we don’t have to spend the whole weekend working. So, I’m sitting at the school uploading a few pictures I took last week while waiting for Kate to shower so that we can go to the Farmer’s Market then go for a walk on Murphy Dome. The Midnight Sun Festival is this weekend so we’ll spend some time at that too.

I think I’m getting used to the light at night. I don’t like it, but I’m getting used to it. It longer feels as weird to walk outside at 2 am to be surrounded by bright light. Also it’s less weird to watch the sunset almost an hour after midnight.

There hasn’t been much time to take pictures, but I did drive out to Chena Lakes on Thursday to drop some blankets off for Kate since it was her camping night. I stopped at the flood control project to take some pictures because it was a gorgeous day.

I like this place
