One of the places we went when I was in Alaska last summer was a place that people fall in love with - Homer Spit. Here is a view of the beach and the beautiful water and mountains surrounding it.
Here it is as Gregg and I were flying towards it over Kachemak Bay. Behind it on the hillside is Homer, Alaska. The Spit juts out into the water with a 5 mile long highway that runs the entire length of it. A colorful marina is in the foreground, a beautiful beach runs the length of it and cute little eccentric shops and eating places as well as places to lodge are almost at the end. People are there with motor homes, tents, campers soaking up the enchanting spell of the place. The names of the shops alone are worth the trip, The Spit Sisters, The Better Sweater, The Red Dog Saloon to name a few. I fell in love with it, too.
