Soldotna - Kenai

7-7-2013 --- Rain, Rain go away!  Too many cloudy rainy days. Guess we are spoiled with the great weather we have had in Alaska. 

Friday enjoyed the movie  “The Lone Ranger”… We saw some of the filming at Moab, UT last year.  Enjoyed a few good laughs!

Saturday night we went to Hooligan’s in Soldotna to see Hobo Jim the Alaska Balladeer.  He loves to sing and tell the tales of Alaska.  Hope to see him again in Homer.;

Today a scenic drive from Soldotna to Kenai to Nikiski to Captain Cook State Recreation area – Too many clouds to see the mountains just across the bay. 2013-07-07 Soldotna Drive 002
