Petanque in Alaska

An interesting story from Mary in Anchorage. Thanks for sharing it!

Bonjour! I’m attaching a few photos from our petanque game from earlier this summer in Anchorage, Alaska. For several of us it was our first time playing. We were introduced to the game by Michel, a transplanted Francais. What makes these photos unusual is that we were playing in a field on the periphery of which were two baby moose; twins, presumably. We never did see their mother and assume she must’ve have been killed or died. They seemed to enjoy staying a certain distance from us because they went away for awhile, then returned and stayed the same distance from us no matter where we moved. When we packed up to leave they also took leave!
