It was chilly, and we missed the parade that kicked off Fur Rondy events in the morning. But TG was thrilled we had made it to the races when we spotted this outhouse.
|Yes, that's a T.A.R.D.I.S. outhouse racing down the street.|
|The name of the other outhouse is Poo Houze|
My husband got a kick out of this entry.
|The name painted on it was Kulluk!|
It was very crowded, and when we got downtown and parked, a nice lady with a dog from Missouri asked us if anything was going on, she was afraid she missed any Fur Rondy excitement, and followed us to the races. Since the races take place on the same street/block as Grizzly Gifts, I also ran in there for a minute to pick up some extra lip balm for my husband. He's picky, he likes the kind I make, or the kind made by Silverbear Sundries who do sell at Grizzly Gifts. A man from one of the villages came up to us selling a jar of smoked salmon, and Michael bought it.
It was fairly chilly out, and my feet were freezing.When everyone else was chilled, we went to Kobuk Coffee Co. and got some tea, and the traditional rum cordials which are a family tradition when we are downtown (non-alcoholic). Then we went to Peggy's for dinner. Driving back, we got to see the fireworks over the harbor, and it was snowing which didn't photograph well but it was beautiful.
