Peter Has a Party…Birthday Party

Our drive out Teller Road was an exciting one and marked a successful day. We had learned earlier in the week that today was Peter’s birthday so the team had arranged a special dinner at a new restaurant in Nome. Dinner is usually spent at Airport Pizza, but tonight we enjoyed instead a celebratory meal at the Pingo Bakery and Seafood House. It was a great dinner of halibut and salmon served alongside pasta and eggplant. What a rare treat after a long day in the field. Having been tipped off that today was Peter’s birthday, the proprietor presented Peter with a small cake topped with a single candle. We had all signed a card for Peter as well today with best wishes from everyone on the trip.

Happy Birthday Peter!
