#3 2019 Trip to Alaska
As I said already, we took a fast trip across the lower 48 and hit the border on the scheduled day we were supposed to. Once through the border without International incidents, we headed for the big mall in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I had a good time there although we only went through ¼ of the whole mall. Since I have posted pictures from the mall on other blogs, I will only post a couple here.

|Inside Dragon Fruit|
This is a Dragon Fruit we found in a giant Chinese grocery store. One of my many mottos is: If it doesn’t crawl off the table, I’ll eat it. Becky looked up the information about the weird, yet beautiful fruit. Couple of things I found noteworthy were that they were grown in Asia and Florida. Who knew? Another thing is if its juice is mixed with a certain fruit juice (which one now escapes me, but it doesn’t matter since I don’t intend to mix it with ANY juice.) you could suffer from anaphylactic shock. Possibly leading to death. That might put a slight damper on the trip for the rest of the group. Other than death, it is supposed to be good for you.
This picture is of Mary Read, aka Becky Morris and Captain Morgan, aka Jim Morris. They had just out sailed Johnny Depp and we were off to celebrate victory with a meal at Bubba Gump’s Seafood. Coconut Shrimp, Popcorn Shrimp, Boiled Shrimp. Well, you know.
