April 10th, 2015 – Homer – Alaska

We went walking in an alpine meadow today in Eveline State Recreation Area.  It is off the beaten path and we were the only people in the meadow.  The path was also off the beaten path as it was nothing more than some trampled plants in shoulder high flowers and plants.  It was beautiful, but a little unnerving because it was like walking in a maze.  Even with maps, we had a bit of a time with the walk because there were so many options for trails.  And yes…more fireweed.

We also went to the end of Homer Spit, a 4.5-mile long piece of land jutting out into Kachemak Bay.  We found all of these gulls in the water and also took a picture of a bird (3rd picture) that we have never seen before and do not know what it is.  If anyone knows, please let us know.  We found another eagle’s nest and got to watch one of the parents bring it a fish.  Awesome sight to see and adult eagle flying across the sky with a fish in its talons.  So awesome, neither one of us got a picture of it because we were so busy watching, but we will never forget what we saw (we just cannot share it).  What better way to end a day than for Don to buy his first growler (or 1/2 growler) at Homer Brewing Co.  We had to get the baby one because Leslie thought it was cute (and it will actually fit in the RV refrigerator).

    You TWO are toooooo brave! Now what if you had gotten lost out there in that maze with no one around to rescue you. You would have NEVER gotten back home to us! How in the world are you ever going to remember seeing all of these beautiful sights??? Go back and look at your pictures I suppose. They are sooooo good on the eyes.
