Around Homer. . .

We planned to go by ferry to Seldovia today, but when we got to the dock, we found out the ferry does not run on Monday and Tuesday. So we decided to spend the time exploring Homer today and go to Seldovia tomorrow.

It didn't take long to do Homer. :-) It, like most Alaska towns, is not large and it doesn't take long to see all there is to see. . . or at least a lot of it. This is not a criticism. Alaska is really only sparsely populated and if you come up here and expect very large cities at every turn in the road, you will be disappointed. We, on the other hand, find the communities to be quaint , charming and interesting. A lot of people working in the shops here are not Alaskans by birth, but came up here for some other reason and have stayed.

We got a shot of one of the glaciers that is visible from the spit. I actually got a better picture of it from town. And the eagles were on their nests again, so I got some shots of them. We do have some large military planes that fly around here. There obviously is an airbase close by.

Hopefully if the weather holds out, we will be able to go to Seldovia tomorrow.

Till next time. . .

Sue Henry writes a great mystery series about a woman and her dachshund Stretch who are from Homer and travel in a Class C motorhome.
