|We left Soldontna and drove the Sterling Highway the 84 miles to Homer.
We drove through town and out onto the spit. What is a Spit? - "The Spit" is a curved finger of land left behind thousands of years ago by glaciers that once blanketed Alaska's Kenai Peninsula. Today, the shore line is commercial with sport and charter fishing boats, water taxis, ferries, research ships and U.S. Coast Guard cutters. The waters of Kachemak Bay are home to salmon, halibut, whales, and countless shore birds. And....the shoreline is now lined up with RV's, campers and tents. There are several boardwalks and resturants we will explore while we are here.
We are staying at Hertage RV park on the "spit" for 2 nights.
We drove back to town to get a few things at Safeway. We couldn't find a parking spot because there was a street fair. Eventually we parked and walked through the fair. Lots of crafts, artwork and commercial items. We were actually on the hunt for food.
