I have posted this escape more than once, it fits so nicely.

 Maggie dispatched this Dachshund intruder from our backyard.

Both were happy to see the fence.

Dachshund because it could escape.

Maggie because she escaped any further chasing.

Her job completed, shed trotted back

to the backdoor very satisfied with herself.

However, there was no escape for these husky puppies…

 

…was once MGW  and another female traveller

had them in their grasp.

Alaskan letters and numbers this week.

Probably the last thing I expected to see

in Alaska…an Australian opal miner

selling his wares.

Just had to have a chuckle.

 

I think America still measures

distance in miles.

Either way, miles or kilometres,

it makes you realise how far away home is.

Fences

Fencing husky puppies away from harm

on Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau.

A very temporary fence around Taji

after she had been spayed.

It was supposed to keep her quiet, not stretch run etc.

As soon as we stepped out the back door she was

jumping up against said fence and

in her six weeks of captivity

nearly pushed the fence over.

So much for keeping her quiet. 🙂

We had probably the busiest year we will ever have in 2018.Late February we spent a weekend in Auckland

to celebrate the engagement of

our eldest son to his bride to be.

 

In June we were blessed with falling snow while

visiting the Columbia Icefield and Athabasca Glacier.

Most of us had not seen falling snow ever,

so a real delight.

A week or so later while cruising the Inside Passage

during  our stop at Juneau we flew

onto the Mendenhall Glacier to visit the huskies

and have a rife in a sled.

Another highlight.

 

 

  

We hardly seemed to be home

before preparations needed…

to be made for our road trip in New Zealand

prior to our son’s wedding.

A Māori Hāngī at the

Whakarewarewa Māori Village in Rotorua…

 

…and a visit to the Hobbit Movie Set at Matamata,

 

…were preludes to the big day.

 

 

The next morning back at

Auckland International Airport

for our flight home.

A fence needed to keep us out of the water

in Ketichikan, Alaska. The red clover leaf style sign is owned by

an Australian who uses

Australian Opal and Alaskan gold

to manufacture jewellery. 

 Never expected a fence on the Mendenhall Glacier.

Its purpose was to protect these puppies.
