It’s drizzling today. The first overcast day since I’ve been here, but it’s still in the 50s and not too bad! I went to the post office to drop off my application for a PO box. There’s a waiting list to get a box.
So until then, my address is:
Nome, AK 99762
Here are some pictures from the post office:
Then I went to look at houses with a realtor, Nome Sweet Homes (it’s not often that you find an igloo and a cute name on a realtor’s logo). I’m not planning to buy a house yet, but wanted to get an idea of what kind of houses and prices are around here. Houses are very expensive here–it’s the first time I’ve seen a trailer house for over a quarter of a million dollars!:
The rest of the day I wandered around town, and here are some random favorites of what I saw:
The inviting local flower shop
Dredging bucket flower pot:
More flower pots ~ These are old buckets from the gold dredging machines that are discarded and then used to decorate parks and yards.
My favorite grocery store logo ~ from Hanson’s Trading store:
Barge on the Bering Sea–this is what my cargo is coming in on! Should be here in 1-2 weeks!
Ladder on a roof:
