Fran Tofflemire retired in 2008 and moved to Alaska.
Almost immediately, she started exploring the Last Frontier. She’s been halibut fishing out of Homer, on a sightseeing cruise out of Seward and flightseeing over Skilak Lake.
“I just wish I had moved to Alaska when I was young enough to enjoy all the wonderful things,” she said.
Fran, now 68, lived most of her life in Oregon. She spent her adult life, and much of her youth, in Salem. But her new home suits her well.
“It’s more peaceful, more beautiful, more God’s country,” Fran said.
