I got up early and dressed for the day’s ride.  No rain gear today, it was dry, sunny and warmer than it had been any day since I entered Alaska.  I took off and started stopping to shoot almost immediately.  I stopped every chance I could and shot everything I had a chance to shoot.  Even with all the shooting stops I still entered Anchorage around 2:00pm.

I stopped by the Anchorage Harley-Davidson Dealership “House of Harley-Davidson,” picked up a t-shirt, and headed for my hotel, the Millennium.  I checked into my room and grabbed my camera.  I had seen a float plane landing on the lake behind the hotel on my way in, I thought I would investigate further.  Turns out there’s an airport on the lake for floatplanes.  As I strolled around the lake and checked the planes out I grabbed a few shots of the action.

After my stroll, I had dinner and an Alaskan Amber, one of my favorites from my tasting a few days earlier.  After dinner I adjourned to the patio for the evening’s cigar and then it was off to check the bike and hit the sack, eager to see what tomorrow would bring.
