... at the Fireweed Gallery I bought a nice photo of fireweed in bloom with snow capped mountains in the background.

The blue forget-me-not is actually the state flower for Alaska, but for me it is the pink fireweed that we have seen everywhere! As the flowers bloom they moult whispy cotton-like strands which you see drifting through the sky when the wind blows. It's like summer Alaskan snow.

Today we are in Homer, another place affected by the earthquake. Homer has a long spit that sticks way out into Cook Inlet, and it sank 4 feet during the earthquake. We are looking forward to a day of rest and relaxation tomorrow, enjoying the quaint town here. Hopefully it will be a little sunny - we haven't seen much sun since we left Anchorage.

And it was one of those fabulous days - sunny and calm all day - it was pure magic with snow clad mountains and five volcanoes around us. With a dozen fisherman on the boat and a couple of experienced deckies, a total of 66 halibut were brought to the deck, but most were released (bag limit is 2/person). The biggest was 80lb (about 36kg) while the average was around 8-10kg. Ron caught six and brought two around 15-20lb ...
