Alaska '08 Day 38, Homer

Sat July 19, 2008

Today the weather was clear and no wind, temps maybe upper 60s.

We walked bishops beach at the 10AM low tide. We found hermit crabs, a couple of small sculpins and Emmy found a 6 rayed star. The kids were pretty happy even though I didn't think it was much better than right out front of the campground.

We drove skyline drive above town. Kind of hard to find, easy if you have a ap. Great views of the spit and Kachemak bay. At the east end we ran into fog and turned around.

Later in the day we checked out some of the shops on the spit. The spit was jammed, no place to park, lots of people. I picked up a Salty Dog Saloon T-shirt. The place reminds me of Captain Tony's in Key West. The inside is tiny and dark and the walls are covered with dollar bills people have signed.

After supper Mike and I walked the marina looking for the boat we are going on tomorrow (The Big Easy/Alaska Adventures). We stopped in to the salty dog saloon for a Homer Brewing company IPA served in a Sobe Ice Tea bottle.
