Homer Trip, Part 3

Remember to click on the pictures to make them larger.

Got up this morning just in time for free hotel breakfast. We sat out on the balcony for a few minutes enjoying the gorgeous view. A bald eagle flew within 20 feet of us. We continued to watch as this majestic bird soared high up into the morning sky. We noticed the sea otters on the bay and the many coastal birds atop the water. On the way out of town, we stopped at a couple of souvenir shops. Our only purchases were some fresh Washington apples from a local stand. Along the road toward Kenai, we spotted some type of lighthouse at the edge of a mountain ridge. We drove along the Sterling Highway to the north and on to Captain Cook State Park. It has some awesome views of the ocean. It is a very remote area. We probably passed maybe 3 other vehicles on the park's main road. We pulled into a parking area for a quick restroom break. However, as soon as I saw this sign I no longer needed the break. Luckily, we didn't encounter a bear but we did catch a glimpse of a bull moose along the edge of the woods.
