Smallest-Fergus.jpgYes, I’m back finally, what with family vacations in North America, an unplanned illness and all sorts of other travels I’m finally home and ready to get back to work. The newest effort for the site will be published in just a few minutes, hope you like it.

We are in effect going to start over. By that I mean that we will be visiting many of the churches we’ve seen in the past to check their progress since most of them were in various stages of construction and repairs. So, in the next few months expect many repeat visits such as to: Dingle (one of our most popular churches), Miagao has completed some extensive renovations and the same with San Miguel’s Church. It should be fun the team is really looking forward to it…watch out for those new visits…

Juneau, Alaska’s State Capital.

Juneau is the State Capital of Alaska. It has been the capital of Alaska since 1906, when the government of the then – District of Alaska was moved from Sitka as dictated by the U.S. Congress in 1900.

After docking, SWMbO and I set out to explore the town. One of the most important things we’re looking for is the ‘churches’ and we found one of the most important. In addition, one of the first things that we notice as we walk up Franklin Street is the Red Dog Saloon which basically dominates the main intersection in downtown Juneau.

The Red Dog Saloon is the most famous of the colourful drinking establishments in Juneau. It’s only been in its current highly visible location since 1988 when it was moved intact from a couple of blocks up Franklin Street. The church follows soon thereafter and a surprise it will be…
