Alaska – Day 37 Homer Spit

We spent the better part of today exploring the Spit; doing a little window shopping, fishing and eagle watching. We revisited the Seafarer’s Memorial and saw the bell that is rung each time afisherman is lost at sea.

We visited Coal Point Trading Company and did a little “fishing” while we didn’t catch anything we decided that we’ll return next week before we leave and try again.

Just as we were leaving the Spit we spotted a lone Bald Eagle just sitting there watching the world go by and had to stop and keep him company for awhile…

Learned a couple interesting factoids this morning: It’s about 15 to 20 degrees cooler than normal for this time of year, and did you know that all polar bears are left handed?

A must go to place to visit in Homer!

That’s about it from Homer – more to follow….
