From Colonial Beach to Alaskao

by Pat (Cozzens)Terwilliger
(Indian, Alaska)

Every summer our Dad drove us from Arlington to Colonial Beach where we stayed at the New Alanta Hotel. He would drive back home to work and return the next week to pick my Mom, sister, brother and myself up. This was during the 2nd world war and we would watch the Navy ships practicing as they used an old ship for target practice a long way off. Most of my family is gone now and I have lived in Alaska for 62 years so that is home now though I have many memories from those days.
