started cloudy but cleared up as we rode down to the spit to take our trip out
on to KachemakBay and to the Otter Cove Resort for
They had advertised wildlife
viewing, but the wildlife consisted mostly birds at the area known as GullIsland.This is the summer home of gulls, murres,
cormorants, and puffins.We also spotted
a couple of otters swimming in the area.The otter population in the area has diminished since the seine fishing
for salmon has started.The otters have
moved to other areas.
okay.We had a limited menu to choose
from and the service was sloooooow.We
did have a Steller’s jay entertaining us as he stole items off of the outdoor
tables.The view from the resort was
nice with Mt.Iliamna off in the distance.The return trip was fast and we returned to
rain in Homer.
catching our breath a bit, we once again wandered down to the spit to see what
we could see.By BelugaLake
a number of cars were stopped.Looking
back we noticed an eagle sitting just at the edge of the water.Sooooo, back we went.This eagle entertained us for quite a
while.He strutted around, pulling up
grass, jumped to a wooden post, jumped down pulled up more grass while walking
toward us, then when he finally had the piece of grass he wanted he flew
driving farther down the spit and watching the fishermen a while, it was time
to head back for the night.
plans for tomorrow, although we will go to the Oceans and IslandsVisitorCenter.
