We left Anchorage this morning headed down the Seward Highway toward Homer. It was overcast and foggy all day. The drive over Turnagain Pass was beautiful but we were not able to see the mountain tops and glaciers because of the fog and smoke. We have to come back this way when we leave the Kenai Peninsula so hopefully we will have better views then. We turned off on the Sterling Highway towards Homer and saw three grizzly bears along the Kenai River.



The Kenai River is beautiful and is a very popular fishing area – here they have “combat fishing” – elbow to elbow fishing.


We stopped at an overlook that was above the clouds and could see the Aleutian Range across Cook Inlet.


We arrived in Homer and are camping in Heritage RV Park on the Homer Spit. The Spit is a narrow strip of land that extends 3.5 miles into Kachemak Bay with a small harbor at the end. On the way onto the spit a bald eagle flew in front of the truck and for a minute we thought we were going to hit it. What a beautiful site to have a bald eagle fill the windshield. Our RV park is about halfway down the Spit and our site backs up to the bay. We can watch the tide come in and go out from our back window. Here are some views from our campsite. We walked the beach behind our campsite and picked up some seashells and looked at some dead crabs.
