White water rafting

My cousin and I (we’re both behind the oars man) having fun white water rafting on the Nenana River in Denali, Alaska on 9 June 2016.

I am back after a really wonderful and fantastic holiday in Alaska.

As you can see, I am all smiles during the white water rafting. A very mild white water rafting, that is.

The fun part was nineteen hours of daylight. This land of the midnight sun is awesome. At around 11.30 at night I got to watch the sun set.

And still the sky did not turn pitch dark. It was the colour of dusk (five hours of night-time). And the sun rose at about five o’clock.

My itinerary covered the Denali National Park; the Talkeetna river scene then to train station to board the train to Denali; rafting  and the Tandra Denali tour; the Prince William Sound college Fjord cruise; and the Seaworld life centre.

My pictures are still in the camera. It will take me awhile to do the download and sort through them.

I arrived home early this morning the 15th of June. Happy to be home. However far I travel, I am always happy to be home again.

Need to sleep off this jet lag of 25 hours of flight time and four airport stops – from Anchorage to Portland to Seattle to Tokyo and finally to Kuala Lumpur.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
