Leaving Homer

Remember to click on the pictures to make them larger.
We slept in a bit Sunday morning. Once we got up, we decided to head closer to Anchorage for the night. Here is Greg checking out the gorgeous scenery on Beluga Lake.It was a beautiful, bright, sunny day and we just kicked back and enjoyed the scenery as we headed out of town toward Kenai. We drove along the Sterling Highway and we stopped and took some pictures of the local volcanoes, Mt. Iliamna and Mt. Redoubt. Here you can check out one of the volcanoes right over Greg's shoulder. In the village of Ninilchik, we got out and took a stroll in a small park. The park was high upon a bluff and you could see a deserted beach far below. This area becomes very popular in summer when people come here and dig for razor clams. You could drive on the beach, but only in a 4 wheel drive, so we admired it from afar. As we neared the town of Kalifornsky, we stopped for a walk along the beach. The wind was brisk, forcing us into our coats to meet the chill. That didn't deter us and we enjoyed the near solitude for quite a bit of time. After leaving the beach, we made our way to Kenai for lunch.
