Halibut Dinner - Standing: Judy and Don; Seated (from left): Mike, Mary,...

Mt. Redoubt

Mt. Iliamna

Moved up the coast from Homer to Ninilchik and another campground on the beach. We had a great view of the Cook Inlet and (when the sun came out) two volcanoes – Mt. Redoubt and Mt. Iliamna. We also met up with our friends, Don, Judy, Mike and Mary again. They came to see eagles and they found some here at Ninilchik. Rog and Mary took a half day charter out of Homer to catch some “white fish” but they didn’t catch anything. Bummer!! It wasn’t so bad for Roger because he already had his halibut, but Mary has been fishing since she got to Alaska and hasn’t had any luck so far.

Speaking of halibut, Don and Mike were really hinting that they wanted to eat some so we had a dinner of halibut our last night together. Mary cooked the fish and made rice pilaf, Judy and I did salads and Rog made a cake. Add in a little Pinot Grigio and we had a great meal. It was fun and a good way to end our stay at Ninilchik.
