Went driving around Homer yesterday getting the lay of the land and found Homer to be a bit larger than we first had thought it was. While there is plenty of evidence that tourists are here we are also hearing that it appears to be close to 30% less booking than normal. We were given a choice of two spots when we first arrived, the second based on a cancellation.
Drove out to Homer Spit which houses many RV camp sites, a lot of marinas, the Alaska Ferry Dock, Seafarers Memorial, and Land’s End Resort. We’ve decided that we need to return to just walk around and enjoy the sights. A visit to Homer is not complete unless you spend time on the Spit.
We met with Clint of Hallo Bay yesterday afternoon and spent time with him talking about the bear camp and what to expect this Sunday when we fly there. We originally booked a one day tour but now wish (at least Don) that we had gone for the 2 day 2 night – oh well there’s always next time (which Don says will be soon).
We’ve been spending some quality time at 2 Sisters Bakery (thanks a lot Ken) where the coffee and food is delicious. We’ve decided to cut back at least till after we take the flight on Sunday…. In case you might wonder, yes this is a must go to spot when you are in Homer. Great food and great people.
Enough for now later……

PS We thought we'd share what our waterfall looked like while we were camped at Bertha Creek Campground so click on the image ....
