To most, living in Alaska sounds very cold. After living there for a few years, we have definitely became accustomed to cooler temperatures. Harper has only known warmer temperatures on vacation and not many have taken place during the hot months.
It was amazing to see locals in jeans and long sleeve shirts. The caretaker of our rented house even commented “it’s not that hot.” Midday it was 95! When we left Alaska it was half that!
Fortunately we had a great place to hang out during the hottest part of the day. The house we rented was fantastic with a shaded side-porch and lots of kids’ toys. However much the heat was, it felt so good to have the sun on my skin. I’m getting tingles just thinking about it. I love being in a place where the shade and sun temperatures are noticeably different. Definitely makes me miss living in a place with a true summer.
Do you search for heat when picking a vacation destination?
