Our first day in Alaska is officially in the books! We flew into Anchorage late Friday night and slept in a tad, so we didn't get our day officially started until noon. We decided to explore downtown Anchorage, which was a sweet, slow, older area right on the water.
outfit details: H&M shirt dress [new, $15], Banana Republic tights [new, $3], Hunter boots [new, $80], Kenneth Cole jacket [new, $90], Burberry scarf [secondhand, $80], Gucci bag [secondhand, hand me down], Gucci scarf (on bag) [new, gift], Rayban wayfarers [new, $90], Tiffany & Co heart studs [new, gift]
...do you mean a bus?
We had lunch at a cute little spot in downtown called Brown Bag Sandwich Co. It was delicious!
Feel free to drool over the following foodie pic.
After our lunch, we started our 2.5 hour drive to Seward, a small waterfront town south of Anchorage. The drive was green and gorgeous!
Can you spot the Sydney cameo? ;)
Once we made it to Seward, we decided to enjoy a 3 hour dinner cruise of the nature, wildlife, and views off the coast of Alaska. We were not disappointed! The water was a beautiful blue/grey, the weather was bright and crisp, and we had the opportunity to see a variety of wildlife, including whales, puffins, seals, bald eagles, and mountain goats!
Windy hair, and I did care.
Overall, our first day in Alaska was a dream. Today is a bit slower, as the hubby actually has to do work today. le sigh. But you can expect more photos of this quaint little waterfront Alaskan town as I do a bit more exploring on my own today.
