We took the bus to town and on the way there was an eagle in it's nest with babies right near the road, then we went onward and got off on stop #2 and walked around a bit. We walked over to the beach and took some photos. Very pretty area. The boardwalk shops were nice and i bought a t-shirt there. We walked over to the salty dawg since it was mentioned a few times, walked in and found it was decorated with $1 bills all over the inside. It's a small saloon. I really enjoyed walking around the slips and taking pics of the boats and their names (also a good way to easily see where your pictures were taken if you're like me and take 900+ (total trip) pics between the camera and the phone. Nice little town but not much going on there. If you just hang around the places on the pier it will be the most action you'll see.

Love Homer. One of our favorite places to visit. The Spit is great, as is Pioneer Ave. Check out The Pratt Museum and the Visitors Center. If you’re hungry, check out Cafe Cups or the Little Mermaid.

The first part of the day was overcast, and visibility was fair. There was trouble docking, and we were delayed leaving the ship by an hour. That said, all of the tours adjusted their schedules to accommodate the delay. We took the Homer Highlights tour and started by visiting the Pratt Museum which is a neat science and natural history museum of the Homer area. We then traveled to the Norman Lowell Gallery, and had the opportunity to meet with the artist himself. Wonderful experience, and absolutely beautiful artwork. We were supposed to do some sightseeing after this, but Mother Nature brought a fair amount of rain to Homer, (no surprise as we visited during the Alaska rainy season) and visibility disappeared. Our last stop was the Islands & Ocean Visitor Center. This is the visitor center for the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge which encompasses the Aleutian Islands, and the waters surrounding the Kenia peninsula. There are lots of shops and restaurants along the Homer Spit. There are shuttles that run along the Spit, but it should be mentioned that the spit is FIVE MILES long and cruise ships dock out near the end. I am planning on going back during a less rainy time of the year as I have heard and seen pictures of the beautiful Kachemak Bay area.

This port has a little bit of something for everyone, take the bus into town and visit each stop it makes. Go to the library or book store and pick up a mystery book! There are great little restaurants around the point as well.
