I’m not sure if Alaska is exactly ‘cottage country’ of if it is actually the supreme cottage country….Let’s face it, there aren’t too many places left as wild and free as Alaska seems to be, at least to those of us who are not in Alaska….
But…if I a way, I am pretty sure that is where I would like to have my cottage. Right in the middle of Alaska…looking at mountains and lakes and wildlife. Of course I have always been mesmerized with Alaska, ever since I watched the televison show, Northern Exposure, and the goings on of the residents of the fictional Alaska town of Cicely with Doctor Fleishman and the rest of the gang. I used to go to sleep dreaming of walking into The Brick, and seeing the folks…
Well, Northern Exposure ran it’s course and got cancelled, but I may have found a suitable replacement in a blog I recently came across, called Living In Alaska
It’s written by Michelle, a lovely young woman from I believe Michigan who moved to Alaska with her family about a year ago, and from the sounds of things, wouldn’t dream of moving back. From the stories and pictures on her blog, I wouldn’t want to leave either, perhaps that is the real reason why I have never gotten around to making the trip, I’m secretly afraid I wouldn’t want to leave.
As much as I hate to see you leave, drop on over to
Living In Alaska and see for yourself. Some of the better pictures are in Michelle’s older posts, so don’t forget to look for them. Tell me you won’t be wanting to go to Alaska yourself after reading Living In Alaska
Just don’t forget to come back to The Cottage Chronicles…I miss ya already….
Speaking of Northern Exposure, the picture above is from the cover of the CD More Music From Northern Exposure (1990-95 Television Series)
