It was a nice run from Seward up, over then down to Homer. We pulled into the Driftwood Inn & RV Park at noon. Man! What a site we have. We pull straight into our site and see the Cook Inlet 250 feet away out our picture window windshield. The cool air definitely has a salt water smell. Awesome!

We took a drive after lunch down to "Homer Spit". The spit is just a narrow piece of land about 4 miles long, jutting out into Kachemak Bay. It reminds me of driving down Daytona Beach in Florida.

A number of people we have talked to have mentioned different things to see there. The Salty Dawg Saloon and Captain Patties Fish House to name a couple. We'll keep you posted.

Drove out to Homer Spit again. Got some great pictures of an eagle. Saw a couple of seals playing in Cook Inlet outside our picture window.

Went to Captain Patties for supper. What an experience that was. The wait staff were great. Friendly and courteous. The food was awesome and plenty of it. We had crab stuffed mushrooms, char-grilled halibut and baked salmon with shrimp and scallops in lemon dill sauce. Highly recommended stop.

The Salty Dawg Saloon is a small bar. The entire ceiling is covered with american dollar bills with people's names on them. It looked like they covered everything but the furniture.

Today was a down day, grocery shopping, checking out the shops on the Spit and relaxing. Oh yeah, Sophie went for another dip in the Pacific. Tomorrow it's off to Palmer.
