What a great day to celebrate my 65th birthday in Alaska.
After a leisure start to the day and a breakfast of Blueberry Waffles, we decided to take a drive. From the campground in town, we drove to the top of East Hill Road and Skyline Drive...
What a beautiful view of Homer, Kachemak Bay, and
From this view,
you get a real perspective of the Homer Spit.
We decided to continue our drive on East End Road, making a stop at the
Fritz Creek General Store, Post Office, and Deli. This place might merit a return trip.
As we continued on out the road, we found a great
photo opt for the glaciers across the bay.
As we traveled on, we found several places where
road construction brought us to a stop. At one of these stops, while waiting on the pilot car, we learned that with the jeep we could
take the road to all the way to where the road ends. This road led us
and down...landing us on the beach at the East End of Kachemak Bay.
The only others on the road were
these guys on horseback and a few ATV's!
There was a point, we thought about turning around, but, if we had, we would have missed this
view from the beach at
the end of the road!
Thanks to each of you for the birthday wishes that also made this day special. I am so blessed to call each of you friend and family.
It truly has been a great day to celebrate turning 65!
