Our family enjoys trying new foods. Especially the Asian variety. So when Sagaya’s had Dragon Fruit in stock, I figgered the girls would like to try some. And they liked it. Made for a delicious breakfast along with mango, banana and star fruit.
The taste is similar to Kiwi Fruit. Texture’s like a Kiwi also. We’ll eat Dragon Fruit again when available.
The funky looking, but edible Dragon Fruit
Scoop the fruit out of the pink rind. The seeds are edible too.
We love new snow. Bout 5 inches of new powder fell Saturday. So we blew dust offa the cross country skis and skied around the lake. Sunshine, new powder, and 5°F makes for perfect skiing.

Even our lab enjoys new snow over the 3 inches of crusted,icy snow which has been on the ground for two months. At least if you judge by the way she bounds across the lake, as opposed to gingerly picking her way old lady like.
And I do believe most of the old packed white stuff was hoar frost, not snow.

Eagle River ‘burbs
Tide is out while crossing Knik Arm
Landing at WIllow for av-gas
Perfect conditions for flying low n slow: low temperature, no wind, sunshine.
Looking for critters tracks along the Big Su
Maybe another mile up the Susitna River will show critters or their tracks
Only during those winter days when there’s bout four hours between sun up and sun down, and the sun barely rises above the horizon, do you witness animals change from their normal appearance, to a form which best suites the situation.
