Alaska - Day 4

Day 4 we are on the move again,
heading south to Homer.

But first, a stop in Soldotna at the Moose Is Loose bakery.
Lots of wonderful donuts, even giant donuts, breads & cute fish shaped cookies.
That will help the miles pass!

The views are gorgeous as we travel the Sterling highway.
We stop at Anchor Point for another wonderful Backroads picnic.

And then gear up for a bike ride into Homer.

Here's a view of the Homer spit, a 4.5 mile low lying piece of land jutting into the Kachemak Bay.
It is believed that the spit is a terminal moraine, a result of a now retreated glacier.
At any rate the spit has the longest road in the world going out into the ocean.

And we get to bike to the end where our hotel awaits!

A little Homer flavor

Finally at our hotel

The hotel is at the end of the spit on a rocky beach.
We delighted in seeing the sea otters swimmimg outside our window.
They seemed to be just as curious about us as we were of them.
They would pop up and watch as beachcombers walked by!
