|We were slow getting up and around this morning. We could watch eagles on the beach from the window of our motorhome.
We went into Homer to find some lunch. We stopped in the famous 'Salty Dawg Saloon' but decided we needed lunch before some spirits. For lunch we had big bowls of chowder and split a seafood platter. Chowder would have been enough.
We walked through the shops and along the mud flats to watch the harbor activity. One of Homer's landmarks is the Seafarer's Memorial dedicated to those who have lost their lives at sea. Fishing charter services were very busy. Homer is the 'Halibut Capital of the World". If your not fishing, I would a say a day trip to Homer may be enough. The boardwalks and restaurants are small and geared to charters.
The eagle watching is a highlight. We took a drive to the other side of the town to where the locals live to get a different view of Homer. Like all of Alaska the views and scenery were great. We ran across a mother moose and her twins.
The city of Homer is a good size city. It is spread out over the hillsides. Population is 5400.
