The adventure today was a ferry ride to Seldovia, a beautiful little town on the Kenai Peninsula across the Kachemak Bay from Homer, AK. It’s not connected by roads, so the only way to get there is by water or air. Out of 213 pictures I took today, I’ll share just a few with you.
The ferry boat.
A close-up of seagulls on Gull Island. There were hundreds of them, maybe thousands. And a few cormorants, too.
Gulls atop a dead tree.
Posing with the moose. A woodcarver’s contest is held here on Memorial Day. We missed it but saw some of the handiwork.
Another tourist photo.
An interesting place to explore.
This outdoor market was for the birds!
I bought a lovely pottery bowl for only $5. It will be perfect for guacamole!
The local grocery store.
With eclectic art to decorate the roof.
And fish to decorate the aisles.
There were murals on buildings.
More wooden sculptures.
All the trash barrels were painted differently.
And fire hydrants were decorated, too.
A hopeful dog at the door of the Tide Pool Café.
Where we had lunch.
The tables all had a surprise under the glass.
It seemed like I kept seeing this ‘flasher’ everywhere in town.
People really live here year-round, in houses like these.
After walking our feet off and gathering on the porch of a coffee shop to await time to board the ferry homeward, some of us were happy to be ending the day.
Back in Homer, there’s a cruise ship here. The place will be crowded tomorrow.
Most of us have one more day to explore the Homer area. Larry and Marilyn are leaving to try to get their refrigerator and washer/dryer fixed. They’ll rejoin us soon, hopefully.
