Sandhill Cranes

First on the agenda for today was laundry.  Since it was a rainy day, the laundry room was a busy place.  Lots of people had the same idea.  After finishing the laundry, we just relaxed for a while and then as the rain let up we wandered down onto the spit just to see what we could see. 

We stopped at Beluga Slough to look for sand hill cranes and found two.

We also found an eagle sitting on the approach lights to the airport.  The sun found a break in the clouds to peak through a make the water sparkle.

We had five enjoyable days in Homer.  It is a quiet town, with a bustling fishing area down on the spit.  We had fun searching out the eagles, which are here in large numbers in the winter, but show up individually during the summer as they are still nesting.  However, we never headed down to the spit that we did not see at least one eagle.  Sometimes they were on the beach, sometimes they were on the light towers along the boat harbor and sometimes they we right by the side of the road. 

Tomorrow we will be making our way across the Kenai Peninsula to Seward.
