June 21 – Today is our travel day. We are headed toward Homer. Homer is only 127 miles away. It is the home of the Spit. The sun is really shinning. Can you believe this is the first time we have not had to wear our coats! PTL! The drive is beautiful as usual. This time there are snow capped volcano mountains and glaciers. As we passed the Russian River 20+ fly fishermen were circling the waters bend in their tall waders and vest having a great time fishing. I know Eddie H, Brian L and my brother-in-law Terry would have a field day doing this. We found the state park, Anchor Point, where we decided to stay. It had 5 different areas. So we park the Hilton4. We know 2 we were too long to stay in. So as the site hunter I needed to go and investigate. Lo decided he would come with me. Oh boy. I pull out of the parking lot and remembered I needed my purse out of the Hilton4. I circle back to get it. As we pull out of the parking lot again, Lo says “are you going to hit that pot hold again?” I tried to be nice and ignore him. I drive 200 more feet. “Lo says this road speed is 35MPH”. I look at him and say, “Obviously you want to drive.” He looks at me and knows it is on. He sheepishly says ok. No problem. Better he drive than I club him before we get a site. The site we got is next to the beach. We can look out the windows and see the Kachemak Bay. We drive the 15 miles into Homer to check it out. Found the Visitor Center. They provided wonderful tips on where to see the best parts of the city. We also check the Spit out and found a great bike trail. Maybe a ride tomorrow. We went up in the hills of Homer and saw the whole city, Spit, glaciers and Kachemak Bay. We will spend the day in Homer tomorrow.
Question of the day – What is a Spit? (And not the salvia kind) Well look it up and let me know your answer.
