What a view we had from our room in Homer! It was so relaxing to sit on the balcony and watch the ships go out on their fishing trips.
Mom and I decided to get out and do some sightseeing around the city. We took a trip up to Skyline Drive and looked out across the spit. The Homer Spit is about 4.5 miles long. It is a really narrow strip of land, really mostly sand and gravel. Our hotel is at the very end of it, hence the name Lands' End.
You can also see several of the glaciers that are found in the mountain ranges that surround Kachemak Bay.Nikolaevsk. The community is inhabited by Russian Old Believers. This is their Russian Orthodox church.
The next morning, we headed out for a trip to Seward. Our first stop was in the Kenai Fjords National Park. Here is Mom reading about the beautiful surrounding forests and glaciers.
