After the competition, Carl and I went to the Anchorage Solstice Fair with friends, Joe and Joy. We saw the historic 4th Ave Theater, an art deco building built during a pause in WWII. It had a gold leaf mural of Mt. McKinley in the lobby and a rendition of the Big Dipper on the ceiling. It stayed open until the 1980's. It is currently boarded up and it may be torn down for redevelopment much to the dismay of the residents. It is an Anchorage icon and our friends remember many fun times in that theater as they were growing up.
We took a walk to the Cook Inlet and saw 'mudflats' for the first time. Visually, they are intriguing, deceiving...in reality, they can be deadly. Their properties resemble those of quicksand. Fisherman have perished trying to walk out on the mudflats.
