April (Snow) Showers

In many places, April is a time of sun, warm weather, children frolicking in the sun…..

Not in Juneau.  It has been two weeks with hurricane-force winds, frequent snowfall, and torrential downpours.  Thankfully, it cleared up on Saturday and Sunday just enough to allow us to enjoy some amazingly spring-like weather.  No complaints about the recent upswing in the weather.  We are happy, Specks is happy, all is right with the world.

This weekend we did lots of exploring.  We walked the Gastineau Channel Bridge, which connects Douglas Island (where we live) with Juneau and all surrounding little Juneau-burbs.  The wind made it a chilly trip but the views more than made up for it.

We also went out to Auke Rec, which is located in Auke Bay (about 20min from our house).  Auke Bay itself is in the direction of "Out The Road" aka where Juneau becomes unconnected with the rest of society.  Gorgeous views as well (and much warmer).

Finally, we spent some time over the weekend sitting on our front porch, enjoying frosty beverages,  cooking out, and spending some quality time with one another.  Life is good :)

Do you "explore" your town? 
What are your favorite weekend activities?
