What Do You Think Of ?

When I say we spent the weekend at the beach – flipflops, bikini and cocktails ?  Not so in Alaska.  Spring has just arrived and the snow has just melted so we layer up our clothing to keep warm, wear rubber boots for the stony, muddy beaches and keep warm around campfires.

We took a school trip to Homer which is a not so pretty fishing city – BUT … the scenery and wildlife are amazing – bald eagles, otters, halibut, starfish, seabirds, snowy mountains and beautiful Kachemak Bay.

   stony beach – full of interesting creatures

 beautiful scenery

 even though it’s sunny we stay bundled up for the cold and wind

 perfect windy day for kites

 racing to build the tallest sandcastle

 fishing in scenic waters

 caught a little halibut

 too much Dramamine for seasickness made Lauren sleepy

 otters everywhere – a little to far away for good pics

 usually we pull onshore for potty breaks – watch out for bears !  This outhouse looks a bit precarious

  smores at the campfire – also roasted eels and halibut cheeks
