Friday Shoot-out~~~Architecture

Time for Friday shoot-outs. I just joined a gang yes a gang! It's called Friday shoot outs. Every week a lovely person picks a topic and we have to go around town and get pictures of the topic. This is my first one and it was great fun going and taking all these pictures.
To learn more about being part of the gang go to Midlife menopause blog, she has all the great details.







This is the ice cream drive through on the way to town, it is up for sale if anyone wants to come on up and sit in an ice cream cone all day. waiting for someone to come buy your cones...LOL
This is in the same lot as the ice cream shack, and it is a log gift store, pretty huh!

This one is beside Uncle Lloyd's and they also have log carved gifts for sale also.


Our lovely Forest center, is about a mile from town and they do a great job keeping track of our fires we have in the summer, and that helicopter is for dipping out lake water for any fire that have a hard time containing.



This I'm not really sure what happened to it. Looks old and half sunken in to me, but I thought it would be neat to add it in.




This is Veronica's Restaurant, very yummy coffee, tea, sandwiches, soup and salads. Hubby and I ate here doing this shoot out.





Our ever so famous movie theater, yes this is where you can see all the newest flix!







Yum Yum and More yum, our bakery that sits right in the middle of town. I always shield my eyes when driving by or I would be hooked on donuts!






Ah yes the fishing tackle store, this is where we get our goods to go catch the salmon, in the world famous Kenai River! The place is jumping busy in the summer!








Hmm never knew about this place but went by it today and made hubby stop the car, oddly enough this place is called The Burger Bus! Maybe I will have to go and try it sometime, looks a little creepy to me to go eat in a bus!









I found this Russian Church to be very beautiful. I should have written down the name of it because I can't remember now. Sorry :-(










This is another church, this one is Trinity Christian Center. I have attended here a few times. My friend goes to this church and it is also where she got married. I was her maid of honor.











This tiny church sits on the same property as Trinity, I love the smallness of it and it always catches my eye when going by.












The inside of the tiny church, I would love to have a little service in there. That would be so cool.













This is on the wall in the tiny church and I sure would love to have this in my house, well one just like it.
Okay this is the end of my tour of Architecture in and around town. I can't wait to see what next Friday's shoot out brinngs !
Have a Beautiful weekend.

I've never seen such a unique group of buildings...except maybe in a total "resort town"...I loved the tiny church...nice place for a private little wedding ceremony! Have a nice weekend Robyn.

Wow....what a perfect way to start my day!! LOVE these photos. I've been really missing AK lately so I really enjoyed these. What part of the state are you in??....I'm guessing somewhere in southeast? We spent time in southcentral, up to Glennallen, Tok, Eagle and Dawson City in the Yukon. REALLY hope to return one day!

Blessings,
Maria

The building structures are so charming! I love the ice cream cone, and want one right now :(

Wow, you are in Alaska? I had a client from there and he returns to see his family so often, but I have not seen pics of the actual towns yet, so this is way cool, okay I just sounded like I am my son's age, but not...thanks for the great music too!

Welcome to the gang. I can't wait to see your photos during winter. Maybe you can do us southern Hemisphere participants a video of a real snow storm. I am also charmed when I see small - well loved churches. and it is a lot of fun to eat in train or bus restaurants - the burgers and coffee are often the best ever.

I just LOVED that teeny tiney church! I love churches! I am working on a book of churches! I would loved to be able to see this one!

I love the Ice cream cone stand. I miss the days of hot dog shaped hot dog stands, and all the other food places that looked like what was sold there!

Missy said...

Welcome to Friday shootout! I like your first picture, the ice cream house LOL, and the igloo church :-) Thanks for touring me around your town, I've never been to Alaska yet and I would love to visit it though I know it would be cold up there.
