Around Homer

A fairly short drive from Soldotna down to Homer today, though we took our time and stopped off plenty of times along the way as the weather was just glorious and gave us stunning views across the lower Cook Inlet to the Alaska Range:

Since we got into Homer around lunchtime, we headed straight onto the spit to find lunch and wander around. It was a very weird little place with a bunch of gift shops to keep mam + Kat happy! We weren’t the only ones enjoying the day in Homer, there were three bikes parked up that had obviously had a little bit of a ride to get here:

The small boat harbor was jam packed with fishing boats, and it was fun watching a stream of the fishing charter boats coming back in and seeing the fish being processed right on the docks. Again, the great weather made it even better:

And of course one shot of a classic building along the spit, an old water tower now serving as a lighthouse – the Sawlty Dawg Saloon:

Tomorrow we’re driving back up to Anchorage for a couple of nights before heading further up to a log cabin around Denali National Park which should be great, especially if the weather continues as it has been the last few days 🙂
