I'm back and rearing to do another My Town Friday Photo Shoot-Out! This week's theme was "A Few of My Favorite Things". I always try to work in a few favorite things in every post, so I tried to include some things here I haven't included before! Unfortunately none of the photos were taken this week because that pesky little orb called the Sun hasn't shown its luminous face in about.....two weeks. It's not that it hasn't shown up, it just tends to be hidden behind thick clouds and graces us with its presence very briefly. So brief, in fact, that when I go to work at the bookstore it is dark. When I leave, it is dark. Not a lot of time for photographing. I'm looking forward to forcing myself out into the elements this weekend to shoot some photos in the twilight, though!

My Favorite New Extracurricular Activity
The US Coast Guard Auxiliary is very active in Juneau, and Kip and I are now officially members! They provide boating safety lessons, help the Coasties where they need it (I really want to train to be a watch stander), and set up life jacket stations near popular boating areas.
My Favorite Place to Eat and Photograph Simultaneously
The Sandpiper Cafe. So good for the artists' tummy and talent.
My Favorite Public Art to Giggle At
Please look up "Weird Al Yankovic Juneau Mural" on YouTube. You will giggle, too.
My Favorite Sign
It points the way to the Russian Orthodox Church on Fifth Street.
I kind of want to steal it, but I'm pretty sure that's a double sin.
My Favorite Thing that God Made that Hangs in the Sky
I really miss the Sun. I'm going to post on it soon.
My Favorite Thing to Eat in Juneau...
...even if I'm clearly grossed out by holding it after I catch it.
My Favorite Alaskan Mode of Transportation
There are two runways at the Juneau airport--a paved one and a water one for prop planes like this going to and from the Bush and other Southeast Alaskan communities.
They make me nauseous like nothing else, but there's a sense of adventure on them that you really don't get on a 747.
