We left our great little motel in Homer under cloudy skies and balmy temperatures for our third day on the Kenai Peninsula and retraced our route along the Sterling Highway 1. Along the way we had one quick moose sighting near Kenai Lake. Riding along Steward Highway 9 we made our way over Moose Pass as the cloud cover gave way to patches of blue …
... California, a couple from Illinois, a mom and her eight year old daughter from Seattle and me. An adjacent table for twelve holds only a lone man so I invite him to join us. He is from Vancouver. We get along well and the eight year old is a model kid at the table. We won’t be lifelong friends but our dinner conversation is fine. The man, Brent, has just spend three weeks with bears. He has good ...
... a 1.5 mile track that took us via the open glacier created river and up to the toe of Exit Glacier. This glacier although not as big as Ayilik that we saw yesterday was still huge, thick and very blue. An impressive sight!! From the first viewpoint we hiked further along to get a view from just above the edge of the glacier. It was a spectacular sight and the overcast skies enhanced the blue shimmering colour of the glacier. Amazing! We took a ...

The hike to the glacier was quick, mainly because it was exciting. We knew we were getting closer because the temperature began to drop as we approached the clearing that provided the best view. The water from the melting ice ran down the sides, underneath and even ...
... the harbour the waters were quite choppy, but the shop on board had plenty of gingerale and ginger sweets to help with the seas sickness for anybody affected.

We had a very comfortable stay in this spacious home just across front street facing the channel. The home is a real work of art, with lots of unique details (like our bed, made from burls), a large, open living room and a well stocked kitchen with every type of breakfast item imaginable. Everything is "help yourself." We really enjoyed our stay. The owners were friendly and made us feel right at home. The house is withing tow blocks of all the downtown attractions and restaurants, with off street parking.
