08/10/2008: "Why I live here..."

Well, still no photos from the wedding. I'm waiting until I get the professional ones from my friend Patrick who is getting back from Mexico next week.

I just had to post some photos of the sunset from last night though. Aaron noticed it out the window and I grabbed my camera and went tearing down the street to the beach to get better shots. These haven't been manipulated in PhotoShop or anything, the color was *way* intense but only lasted like that for a few minutes.

The light looked beautiful against the cruise ships docked downtown.

A neighbor with a house on stilts let me onto their porch to get some shots up the channel towards the Douglas Bridge.

Here's a close up of how the trees on the mountainside looked with the bright colored mist floating around them. It almost looked like a forest fire.

But it only lasted a minute or two, then the colors started changing to light pink.

Aaron noticed this triple rainbow heading down the channel in the opposite direction. The anchored fishing boat was a nice addition.

I was thinking of you recently, wondering how you're settling in with all the cruddy weather we've been having. Did you actually see that sunset last night? Photos can't really do it justice; it made my insides feel vibraty.
And hi AL, wish you were here!

Congratulations on your marital bliss!!! Love all the photos that you've taken/posted since I've been wandering offline. I've moved to the Golden Heart city and am (busily) waiting for school to begin. Maybe after graduation (years down the road) I will find a job in Juneau - well it's ok to dream for now!
