At Home in Homer

The Homer Spit (“spit” is a geological landform) features the longest road into ocean waters in the world (or so the brochure says). The spit provides incredible views and a variety of wildlife along its 4.5 mile length to hundreds of campers lucky enough to spend the night. The tides here are extreme with a difference of up to 28-feet from low to high.

Checking out the pools at low tide. Can you see haRVy in photo above?

Didn’t think so. Here he is perched right above the high tide line.

Very busy harbor here in the “Halibut Fishing Capital of the World.”

Don’t know the story behind this tragedy, but at least the boat is afloat.

Unlike this old beauty and several others at this boat graveyard.

All shapes and sizes.

I’m sure every boat here has a story too.

What the?

Don’t think I’d walk this plank even if I was invited.

Guess the building codes aren’t too strict around here as this is someone’s home.

This also was a home at some point. Interesting neighborhood for sure.

The next day we drove out to the East End where we found a roadside boondocking spot with spectacular views across Kachemak Bay.

We spent hours just watching them transform.

It seemed like a dream in the morning as a thick fog concealed everything.
