We like Homer, Alaska! What more can we ask for. We are on a peninsula (the "spit"). Water all around us, mountains with some snow dripping down them, puffy clouds hanging around the mountains, blue sky between the clouds, absolutely no noise (except for an occasional boat or airplane), a bit of a slight wind -- and our RV now faces right into all of this.
We arrived in Homer on Wednesday (July 22) and stayed at a private RV park (same scenery as above) for four days until moving here today (Sunday) to the City of Homer RV Park. The difference? Better spot here and much cheaper! The negatives: no hook-ups (but they do have water and a dump on site). With our generator and inverter, we do just fine dry-docking.
Yesterday, Jerry took a really small water taxi (with a few others) to a cove across the bay to dig for clams. I didn't go because that is just not my thing. He really got a work out! After seeing his video, it confirmed for me that I made the right decision by not going along. To top it off, it was a cold, rainy, and windy day. But, we had the most delicious, best ever, clam linguini with garlic bread last night.
We are planning to stay here for the whole week, take our bikes to explore the place further and walk all the little shops again (we missed a lot of them on our first walk) and check out the down town.
Talked to Dorothy and Dave last night. They are still in the Glenn Highway area heading towards Anchorage. Should be in this area later in the week.
Will add more to this blog later this week. Enjoy your week!
