On July 17th, Shawn and I arrived in Anchorage, Alaska.
We were met at the airport by a young man named Aaron, who drove us to Alaska Missions headquarters
where were we were given a Volkswagon Passat (with a sun roof) to drive for the week.
Then, we headed to a little town called Nikiski located on the Kenai Peninsula. It was one of the most beautiful drives I have ever taken. Several hours later we took a right on Halibouty Road and made our way to the corner of Josephine and Earl where we found our home for the next seven days.
The place was called ‘Grouchy Old Woman B&B’. It was located on several acres on a hill
overlooking Daniel’s Lake. We were welcomed by the Grouchy Old Woman,
whose real name is Sharon Brower… and her sidekick
Minx. Minx means ‘cheeky or mischievous girl’…and that she is. Inside we met Sharon’s mother
Blanche, who had turned 96 that day. We called her Momma. And so began a week I’ll never forget.
