We finally made it to the beach! Yesterday we drove from Anchorage to Anchor Point on the Kenai Peninsula. We are staying at Kyllonen’s Rv Park for 2 weeks, our longest stop yet. It’s good to not be driving for a while, and we can set up for a long stay. We drove through thick smoke on the way here because of the Swan Lake wildfire. It cleared once we got to the ocean and now we have beautiful blue skies and sunshine! We saw the tractors put the boats in the ocean this morning, quite a sight! There are tons of Bald Eagles, they are huge and fun to watch! We drove to Homer today, which is 20 minutes from Anchor Point. The Homer spit is quite the tourist place. We have plotted halibut fishing and a bear tour for next week.
The road to the Kenai Peninsula was really smoky.
Volcanos rising out of the ocean in the distance, about 20 miles north of Anchor Point.
Home for 2 weeks! Yay!
It is quite windy on the beach!
The tractor pulling the boat to the ocean. A new way of getting a boat in!
He dropped the boat and is coming back to the parking lot.
The Homer Spit
The bay near Homer.
And from the bird lady:
The eagles are amazing. We have seen dozens of adults and juveniles. They are so large it’s equally awe inspiring and terrifying when they fly over. I’m sure I’ll have more photos than anyone wants to see of them over the coming weeks!
Here comes the BOSS!
Staking his claim.
Don’t even think about it!
He even stood his ground in the waves.
That’s definitely HIS fish head!
And off he goes…
Juvenile bald eagle. They don’t get their white head and tail for 4 years!
