Valdez has had beautiful weather since Sunday. Summer is here so the city knocks down all the snow piles to help them melt faster. Here is a loader spreading the yucky black snow around under clear blue skies. GOOD BYE SNOW!!
Hope the weather stays nice for tomorrow as we are going out on the Columbia Glacier Cruise courtesy of Captain Stan Stephens. He does this free every year for Valdez Senior citizens, the disabled and their caregivers. Last year we had a blast and I am looking forward to it again. I'll be taking pictures and videos.
Here are some from last years cruise:

Fresh PWS rockfish before baking in a 400 degree oven on a bed of onions topped with butter and lemon leaves.
Sunday and Monday were sunny and windy. I'm going to wait and see what the rest of the week is like before hardening off my Livingstone Daisies.
Let summer and fishing begin!

Why she'll win: On four-race winning streak. Is one of only five horses in the field to post a triple-digit Beyer speed figure in a race at a mile or longer as a 3-year-old. Off-the-pace win in Fantasy at Oaklawn in last start. Seasoned, her nine career starts are the most in the field, and consistent, with five wins (three in stakes).
Why she won't: Never raced beyond 11/16 miles. This is no Winning Colors, who toyed with the boys in winning the 1988 Santa Anita Derby, and wired a 17-horse field in the 114th Kentucky Derby. Call me a traditionalist. She probably would win the Kentucky Oaks easily.
