Great Alaska Adventure travel blog





Early morning visitors at our Homer RV site - eagles soaring over us at about 50 ft and a little later perched in a tree about 100 ft from our RV.

Today is an unplanned day. The weather is foggy, low clouds and drizzle. We drive into Homer and visit the Island and Ocean Visitors center, which is very interesting, and then walk down to the beach to explore. We meet a GAH rental group at a Homer scenic overlook and compare notes on our experiences with our GAH rental - we are all positive. These folks are from Memphis and drove to Valdez and took the ferry across to Whitier and they reported a very nice trip ($89 per person $257 for the RV).

After the beach it was back to Homer Spit to explore and have lunch. We picked a little restaurant and Anne had her treat for the day with 1.5 lbs of Alaskan king crab and I had the fried halibut and some great clam chowder.

Our departure from Homer was under cloudy skies with a light rain falling. We stopped at the Norman Lowell gallery outside Anchor Point. Mr. Lowell is a famous Alaskan artist who has a huge gallery that is open to the public for free. He is a prolific artist with great paintings, in many different media, of the Alaskan countryside. We met Mr Lowell and his wife.

Anne picked the campsite for tonight as the Capt Cook SRA at the end of the road on the Cook Inlet north of Nikiski. Our site is in a dense forest and just a short walk to the beach looking out over the Cook Inlet to a view of Mt Redoubt and more glaciers.

Today has been a low key day, but still fun and interesting. We are winding down on our last few days of our RV adventure.

We have really been fortunate in that there have been very few bugs. There have been some mozzies but they have not been in attack mode and have encountered a few flies, gnats, etc. Fortunately we have not been attacked by the “noseeums”.
