A boat ride from Homer across the bay to Halibut Cove. A new experience for me. Exciting!
On the way to Halibut Cove we circled around Gull Island which is a rookery where 8 different bird species live, the Common Murre, Black-legged Kittiwake, Glaucous-winged Gull, Pelagic Cormorants, Red Faced Cormorants, Pigeon Gillemonts, Horned Puffins
and Tufted Puffins shown here along with the Gulls.
Later we arrived at Halibut cove, a lovely place with colorful and beautiful houses, shops, art galleries and there we had an amazing lunch. It was the first time ever that I ate raw oysters - only two but I did! Afterwards we returned to Homer Spit and spent some time there. I'd been there once before and I love that place - especially the beach. Fantastic day! Thank you so much Bean and Gregg.
