The Big Town Of Juneau

Recently, Mr. Adams and I made our annual jaunt to Juneau to load up on supplies. We took the ferry over with the pickup and stayed in a hotel. You see, Sitka does not have a lot of big stores to shop big store in Juneau like Fred Meyer has more merchandise in it that our entire town has in all the stores combined! Shopping is hard work for people that aren't used to it....

Sometimes we would just have to take a break....

And pretend like we are trying out the furniture....

It was fun.......but once we got took 2 days to unload the truck!

The good news is that we have enough supplies for another year!
