July 29 – Homer

We left Seward heading towards Homer and made the town of Soldotna our pit stop for the night.  We found a nice park and went down to the river to watch people fishing for salmon along the banks.  The next morning we loaded up on gas and headed out to complete our journey to Homer.
Wow, words can not describe the beauty of Homer.  About a mile out of town there is a lookout along the road that offers some amazing views from up on high.  From there the road drops into a quaint little town.  Homer is a fishing community but not commercialized like Seward is.  The Spit attracts a lot of tourists, mostly RVers and people looking to try their luck on the fishing charters.  There are also boats taking you over to where the glaciers are, where you can go sightseeing for bears, try some halibut fishing, or spend endless days camping out in the wild wilderness.
The town of Homer isn’t impressive with its selection of trails but we did manage to find one and got in some nice views.

Ginger loved our campsite as much as we did
