Homer

The sign reads 'Halibut Fishing Capital of the World'.

We spent four nights in the area. We had a mechanical issue with the Ford checked-out to our satisfaction, cycled along the Homer Spit and wandered around the harbour and marine graveyard there. The whole Kenai Peninsula is nick-named Alaska's Playground. If you're a 'Fisher of Any Stripe' you won't be disappointed in this region ... ' It Caters to You '. 
 




 

We had a couple of meals at Fat Olive's and one at The Harbour Grill ... both were good. Fat Olive's, in particular features local craft beers, an interesting menu, reasonable prices and an entertaining pizza dough tosser!


We walked the shoreline of Kachemak Bay at low tide and the nearby Beluga Trail that wanders through marshy, sea bird habitat. We watched the Kenai Mountains unfold a variety of weather.




There are dozens of RV campgrounds in the area where they park every type of RV, from Class A motor coaches down to small, pop-up travel trailers; tents also ... and a few home-built mobile homes. Many tow a boat and those that don't arrange for a fishing charter as much as a year in advance. 



A Homer 'travel goal' of ours, had been to get out fishing and stock the fridge with halibut or salmon. Even though there are dozens of charter boats that operate in the area, we were unable to arrange even a 1/2 day excursion ... a bit of a dissapointment. If you go, make fishing arrangements well in advance. 





I found these poses intriguing. 

Humans really do just copy everything the natural world has to offer ... technology, physics, the creative arts, music ... ! This carving artist is probably considered creative ...
