Weekend photos (lots of them!)

Schroom on Ballyhoo...doesn't really look that big in this photo..but, trust me, they are HUGE!
Eider, doing his part in the war against litter! (plastic water bottle in his mouth!) He actually dropped his rock in order to pounce on this bottle.

Beautiful fireweed just starting to bloom.

Huge container ship (Maersk) docked at the crane. You can see how foggy it is in the background.
Foggy shot of the fuel dock (where the Cornelia Marie often docks).

Tug boat towing a barge in the fog.

Another flowery, foggy shot from the other side of Ballyhoo.

Can't even see the "balls" on Ballyhoo....no planes lately due to fog...I think it's been 3 days since we had a plane in....Co-worker Annamarie has been stuck since Sunday, not even confirmed until Thursday! She's livin' it up in Anchorage....

My husband came in on Sunday (I got to see him for 3 hours, hanging out on his boat)....here he is leaving town :(

Mary & Emil had another one of their famous bar-b-que's on Saturday....they built an awesome fire pit in their yard (which I didn't get any photos of, DUH)...here is Emil with his "log"...LOL

Sweetie & her adorable son, Jesse....his hot dog is bigger than he is!

Johnny Bruce, son JJ, Mary & Emil drinking "Alien" tequilla...YUMMY! They said this came from Area 51....little did they know I worked there when I was employed by Lockheed...I was there from 1987 until 1989....Never saw any aliens, but I did see alot of weird shit!

And a close-up of the tequila..I have to admit, it was tasty...AND we didn't need training wheels. I only had one shot, that was enough!

Buck (guarding the food table)...Loren Starr and our host, Emil (that's Mary at the grill)

Bff Jan :) and Johnny Bruce!

Hey! Are we on the right blog? There's Goldfish & Chico at the "Balls of Ballyhoo"

We had quite the showing, I think it was Saturday on Ballyhoo....Goldfish, Chico, Sherrie, Hoover, Renee, Eider, Me & Buck...as long as we kept the dogs moving, there weren't any fights...oh yeah, Pam then showed up with Kimo....he likes to get in the other dogs' faces...and he also likes to hump them (doesn't matter if they are females or males...)...so, they get a bit irritated with him....but it all went well.

The cloud shots are for Mj in MD...I know she loves the cloud shots...so, here ya go, MJ!

I love how the rays of the sun come down in this photo....the sun really does exist!

More rays of sunshine...keep that sun shining!

Sherrie, Buck & Eider almost at the finish "post"....

The long, long road to the balls! Love the cloud formations in this photo....

More clouds for Mj.

Me & Buck on our way to Ballyhoo...
What a fun weekend! Despite the sun not being out very much, the barbeque was fun, Elaine was MIA up in the tundra behind Westward Seafoods, drinking her lips off and oh yeah, golfing in the Tundra Classic...haven't heard any stories about the goings-on that happened, but I'm sure we'll hear something soon.
Have a great week, everyone!


  1. Great pics LaPughie! Marja is so jealous of your photo opps up there !! So why weren't you playing golf with the rest of the bloggers ??

  2. I know Marja is jealous...that's why she needs to come up here and see it for herself, just like some other cousin's I know!! Hint Hint!

    I had to work Saturday, so no golfing for this blogger! :(

    I have golfed in year's past, 'tis tons of fun!

  3. Great pics Lauriebelle...I especially love the second shot of the rays of sun...I had a similiar shot myself this past Sunday..course , it didn't have mountains or water...but it was cool. ;-)
    Yes, I will be working on getting there...just too gorgeous a place to pass up. Oh, I am not jealous, I am simply exceedingly envious!! :-D

  4. PS- love the tugboat in the fog, too. :-)

  5. Whoa, there are some hotties walking dogs on Ballyhoo, especially that one with Chico . . . . I need to get up there more often! heheh
