We made it to Homer

Good Morning from Homer Alaska;

We arrived yesterday and it's more crowded here this year than it has been for the last two years combined!  We will be here for the next two nights as well.  Which means two more nights to hang out at the Salty Dawg Saloon!

We left Fairbanks on Monday and drove down to Palmer.  We spent one night there and then continued on to Homer.  We have a beautiful campsite looking over Kachemak bay.

We stopped to let the dogs out on our way down yesterday and there was a moose a couple hundred yards ahead of us. Kim and her Mom walked the dogs while I headed down to get some pics.  Most of them are great shots of the body, it was eating and wouldn't lift it's head up!  Internet is not so great here but we have lots of pictures and video to post.  Maybe we can find some place with fast internet and get some stuff posted in the next couple of days.

Friday we head back North - we have 5 nights reserved in Denali starting Saturday.  That part of the trip deserves it's own post so more later on that!
