We've been trying to get this posted for 2 days - couldn't get either the park wifi or our Verizon hot spot to stay connected. This morning it's working fast so will try to catch up.
We were surprised by the Kenai Peninsula - it's much bigger than we expected & there are mountains & rivers on it. The Homer Spit is more what we expected. We decided to pay whatever it cost to stay out on the Spit next to the water & we are right on the water. The tide changes 20' from low to high so we either have a lot of gravel beach or hardly any depending on the tide at the moment.
We went from hot weather - 80s in Palmer - to rain & cool in Homer. It was spitting rain when we arrived but the sun came out about 8:00 pm & was still shining when we went to bed about 11:00.
We saw a few critters on the drive today. Critter Count: Bald Eagle 3 (5) - Moose - 3 (10) - Porcupine - 1 (crossing the road)
