2013 Virtual Cruise - Day 5 - Alaska for the 2nd day.

Day 5, Friday, September 20:  Alaska’s a BIG Place!  So we’re here for two days! Sales Room, Workshops and RTs open to all QC members.  Silent Auction open.  Preview Live Auction items.  Chat Room Activities (9:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time, Social Chat, 6:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time—Houseparty Helper Drawings!)  Special Presentations.   Art Gallery (Exhibits) open. 
 
I'm in a race for acquiring one of the silent auction entries.   It appears that at least one other wants it as much as I do.
 
One of the activities that they have every day are two workshops with instructions on how to make things.   Flip-flops, glasses, tote bags etc are the type of things being made.   Full color pictures and list of the materials you will need, plus all the instructions.   Easy way to get more things for your souvenir place.  
 
THE NATIVES OF ALASKA, commonly known as "Eskimos", but more properly called Central Yupik (in the Bering Sea area) and Inupiat in the north Arctic, ate very differently from people in warmer climates. Seal meat and oil was important, as were whales, walrus, fish, and birds. Since the climate is so cold, it was important to eat plenty of fats and oils to help keep warm. Seal and whale blubber might not sound appetizing but they can be real life savers when it's 40 degrees below zero!
 
Each day there are lots of pictures of the location that we are virtually visiting and meals that you could have along with the recipes for those meals.   Several salmon dishes - I might have to try those.  
 
 
These guys want to get Salmon too!  
 
Until tomorrow!!!!!
