Jun 30, 2013 - Relocated to Anchor Point

Since we were only moving 20 miles down the road, we had time to sit outside & enjoy the views of Kachemak Bay this morning before we left. It was a very relaxing morning, followed by a very short drive & easy set up in Anchor Point. After we got set up, we drove to the end of the furthest road to the west in Alaska. We saw the tractors they use to launch boats here - hope to actually see them launch a boat while we're here. We also saw 2 Bald Eagles & the juvenile was standing on something & eating it (probably fish) while the other eagle...

Sep 17, 2012 - Anchor Point

The sun came out for about a minute on Monday so Peter suggested we ride out and see some stuff. We went to Anchor Point, the most westerly point in the USA that you can drive to on a continuous highway. Everything has it's distinction, right? It was a sort of rough and rocky beach where the wind was blowing a million miles per hour. Very impressive!

Jul 26, 2012 - western golf open

People are especially friendly in a small campground and ready to share experiences and give advice. After watching three couples slave away cutting up the halibut they've caught, packaging and vacuum packing the fish pieces, we took the advice of a another couple and played golf at the western most golf course in North America. We already played at the northernmost golf course on this trip in Fairbanks, so it seemed only appropriate to add this -most to the list. The course owner warned us to watch for the mama moose and her two babies and...

Jul 24, 2011 - South of Anchor Pt., AK - A Rainy Day

(Ron Writing) We had rain during the night and most of the morning. This afternoon we drove south from Kenai to Soldotna and then south on the Kalifornsky Beach Road, which runs right along Cook Inlet until it joins the Sterling HW just north of Kasilof, AK. At Kasilof we took a side trip on the 15-mile Cohoe Loop Road which also runs along Cook Inlet sort of paralleling Sterling HW. We had some rain during our drive. We expected a little better scenery but even though we were very close to the shore of Cook Inlet, we were generally unable...

Jul 23, 2010 - Freezing wind over the Water

Today we went to the Soldotna Visitor's Center and took a look at the humongous fish that had been caught there years before. Then we went down the fish walk to the river and saw people fishing, cleaning fish, and catching fish. It was pretty cool to see them catch a big fish about 27 inches, but apparently that's a normal size around here. We also watched people dip netting in the mouth of the Kenai River from the bluff in Kenai. There were tents set up on the beach and portapotties too. Everyone had driven down the beach and was now...

Jul 17, 2010 - Just tooting around

When we got up on Saturday it was a cloudy, dismal day so decided to just take a look around some of the places we have yet to visit this time. We checked out the activity at The Point as usual, then decided to drive down to Capt Cook State Park, via Soldotna, Kenai and off roads we have never been on. Had a great day. At our lunch at The Bus in Kenai, which is behind a small RV park we stayed at one time, waiting to get into Beluga Point. Had a great fried Halibut sandwich. Sandwich, fries and soda for $18.00. That's hard to beat that...

Jul 16, 2010 - A fun day

Another beautiful day here at Anchor Point. As you can see from the pictures we pretty much spent out day down by the Ocean. We did ride in to Norman Lowell's art gallery. I would highly recommend anyone coming to Homer take the time to stop in. The prices are way out of our price range, and probably so for the average working person, but you won't see many artists depict Alaska as he does. The driveway is sort of blind, but it's about 10 miles before Homer on the left, just before the Anchor River bridge. We went out to the local...

Jul 14, 2010 - Starting the return

Our morning started with sun and clouds and that was a sight to behold. We welcome anything other than rain. We flaxed around after breakfast and got the camper ready to travel. Our family is headed for Anchorage and flying back to N.H. tomorrow on a red eye. The kids stopped by to say their goodbyes and shed some things that just can't travel back with them. After that we headed out to the Spit to kill some time as we can't get into our new spot until 4 p.m. Decided to restock the fridge in Homer at the Safeway store, top of the gas...

Aug 24, 2009 - Dentist Drills and other fun noises...

We had to travel to Ninilchek because of our dental plan, which is over 2 hours round trip to the dentist. She had all the doors open when she was working on her patients, the noises were creeping me out. I took off for a long walk. Had some halibut for lunch and walked to a garage sale. While I was shopping at the garage sale, Gordon drove by? I ran after him flagging him down, he finally stopped. I said, I thought you would be in there for hours? He said she pulled half his tooth out and gave him a prescription for pain killers and...

Aug 3, 2009 - Anchor Point, Alaska

We headed out early this morning for Homer with the intention of exploring the Homer Spit in Kachemak Bay. The weather was light fog and clearing when we left Anchor Point, but just a short distance south, the fog was so thick that it made driving dangerous because we do not know the road. We turned around and headed back north to explore some other scenic views of the Cook Inlet along the Sterling Highway. The fog was not quite as heavy north of Anchor Point, but still did not allow clear views so we headed back “home”. Our next stop was...

Aug 2, 2009 - Anchor Point, Alaska

Our route today: Alaska 1 to Tern Lake Junction where name changes to the Sterling Highway, then south to Anchor Point, Alaska. Today was a short travel day from our boondocking site near Tern Lake to Anchor Point. Cheryl made me stop at a tourist trap called Town of Living Trees just north of Soldotna. The man that owns this place is a real artist with a chainsaw and we looked at his carvings including a carousel with carvings of Alaskan animals. We took our photos being hugged by a giant carved wooden bear. The next stop was the Fred...

Jul 20, 2009 - a night @ Fred Meyers - Soldotna

This place is crazy! Fred Meyers is like an upscale Super Walmart. This one not only lets rvs park overnight, but has a special parking area for them and a dump station. It was so packed yesterday when we got here. We couldn't believe all the rvs in line for the dump station! The line kept up for hours and we had to squeeze through to get one of the 30'+ spots. That line was still going when I went to bed - all the fishermen heading home after the weekend we figured. And everyone was shopping. Shelves were empty. We joined the line at the...
