Perfectly Lazy Day in Homer

After sleeping in again(yup...we've gotten used to it being light all the time...although we do stay up LATE!), we headed up to the Homer Farmer's Market. We ended up being there for a few hours as our friend (the family from KY that we've been hanging with) did laundry across the street. We enjoyed the environmental folk singer, the fun kid activities, and a very yummy thai wrap and some of the BEST ice cream we've even had. I had an ice cream sandwich on a stick, hand-dipped in chocolate, and then covered with Heath bar pieces. OMG~ it was so delish!! Here is Eric's ice cream~Then we headed to the Alaska Ocean & Islands, which is a visitor center for the wildlife refuge. It was very interesting and Dori earned her Junior Biologist badge.When we returned to the RV it seemed to have warmed up a bit so we went and sat our on the beach and enjoyed the view. I went and did a little shopping (I got a cute winter hat!) with our friend. Then we stayed out by the campfire for a few hours. The wind was so brisk and it felt so cold (51 degrees and I was dressed like it was about 15!) but it was nice up close to the fire! We spent time with our friends before saying our farewells. They are getting up early to head up to Anchorage. They have to return their rental RV and head back to Kentucky. It was sure nice to have someone to hang out with for the better part of a week. Here is Parker with Sam & Stuart.While we were out by the fire 3 bald eagles flew out to the load tide area. One then flew up fairly close to us. We snapped a few photos~

I do adore Homer! We stayed at a quaint little place called Ocean Shores when we were on our honeymoon. Incredible views.

It's always nice to meet new friends especially for the kids, who knows your next trip may be to Kentucky for a visit. Is Doti going to have enough chest to wear all the badges she is earning. She is really a smart kid, Be safe out there. Sam & Donna..

We loved camping right on the shore there in Homer. The eagles were always around for us too, and there was a sea otter with her pups too. While there we did a half day charter for halibut. Loved the area
