Nome Sweet Nome

Clint and I just got back from Nome. It was a good 2 day-1 night trip and was worth the money! Clint had to take his Praxis test and I decided to tag along for the night. We arrived in Nome around 7pm on Friday, went to the hotel and then ate at a place called Molano's Pizza. We had sushi and a pineapple pizza, which is not a great combo but they were both good. We went to the hotel and while Clint studied I watched my favorite shows on HGTV and STYLE, that was a real treat seeing as how we don't own cable. The next morning I stayed in bed while Clint took his test (he said he felt confident about it, so hopefully he passed!) and then we walked around town taking pictures and then we went to a coffee shop and stayed for about 2 hrs. We then walked to the AC store and bought ourselves some groceries to take home! We have real fruit, veggies, and salads! Then we waited at the aiport for another 2 hours and finally boarded on a 9-seat aircraft. I absolutely hate riding on these bush planes, but I guess it was worth it. Here are some pictures:
This is the view from the airport in Gambell. It's not really an airport, but a runway and pavement with a building to hold the tractor. Beautiful view though!
This is our hotel The Aurora, it looks like a castle and is really beautiful. It was nice staying there for the night.
This is end of the race! How cool would it be to be there when the contestants are coming in from the long race.
