Lazy Day in Homer

A travel blog entry by floridawaughs


... br> For those of you who are fans of the Discovery Channel show "Deadliest Catch", Homer is the home port for “Time Bandit”….They are in port right now and we found her!

So, a lazy day of relaxing and catching up to Facebook and email! We are beginning to wind down and use up as much of our food supplies in preparation for leaving on Wednesday!

For the first time in 2 weeks, we drove 0 miles ...

Weather not great today so enjoyed a little sleep in for a change. Yeah! More like our usual style of traveling.
