Rain and No Bears Again
We drove down to Homer this morning in hopes of flying to see bears.
We made a brief stop in Anchor Point, AK to search out another point of interest. While searching we flushed out a moose. Again too quick to get picture. A small bit of searching (there isn’t much area to search) led us to this:
The bottom line says “WESTERLY HIGHWAY POINT”. This is the farthest west you can drive to in North America from some place else. There are a couple of roads in Nome but you have to take a plane or boat to get there. This ranks right up there with our visit to Mt. Sunflower.
We continued to Homer and went to a GREAT bakery. Outstanding fresh baked goods of many types. Sweet and savory goodies and home style breads of all kinds. Also breakfast and lunch items (egg puff, sandwiches, etc.). Reasonable prices, homey atmosphere, helpful and pleasant staff. They say that in order for a food service establishment to survive it must have a product that attracts the locals. There was a steady stream of locals going through while we were there. Definitely a must see in Homer. Not a sole reason for returning but certainly an incentive.
Disappointment again when we got to the hanger. The weather was better than last week but not good enough. Tomorrow looks better. He showed us pictures he took a couple of days ago. Fantastic. We will try again tomorrow.
