Great time in Homer!

enter What a beautiful part of Alaska. Our campground was out on the “Homer Spit” a thin peninsula off of the Kenai Peninsula. It was an outstanding drive down from Anchorage and well worth the trip. The pictures above are the “Fishing Hole” located just south of our campsite. During our stay there we caught several Silver Salmon and tied into several Kings. The weather was perfect, mid 60’s and sunny, it became overcast on our day of departure. The trip from Anchorage was uneventful with the exception of one event. As we departed Anchorage, Peggy was moving about in the motorhome getting things tied down for the day. As you would expect, a jerk dove in front of the motorhome at a red light, and I had to slam on the brakes yelling “Hold on!” Peggy tried, but inertia was her enemy. She tumbled forward into the cab slamming arm into the side wall. The results are shown below;

Christian caught a couple of fantastic Silver Side Salmon. We’ve already eaten one and it was fantastic!

When we arrived in Willow ( just north of Anchorage on our way to Denali) the fish were not quite the same.

Why go mining 400-500 feet under the sea (GUESTIMATE) for a chance for gold when you could just stick a bowl/pan thing in the river and pull out gold? Why? Just, don’t do it in the Willow Creek Resort, (Campsite) Willow Creek, (Town) Alaska (State) Willow Creek. (River.) All I got were tiny flakes about this big: (Colons represent corners) : :

I don’t have much to say, so I’m gonna go look at BUNNIES!

(Love you Momma ((And you, Lex)).)
