Thirty minutes out we got our first sighting: "Blue skies at one o'clock!" We can't see the steep mountains rising up both sides of Resurrection Bay, but there's a full rainbow, one foot in the fog, the other in a glacier. The first wildlife we saw - harbor seals - aren't awake ...

A small strip of glacier moraine extends beyond Homer called Homer Spit, which
was where we camped with a beautiful view of the water with the mountains and
glaciers across Kachemak Bay. Its the little white line on the map coming down from Homer.
Tide pooling is our favorite thing to do in Homer. With it extreme tides of 19 feet, the Bay
... you like that ladies?
One of the males moved toward them at one point and she moved away with
the cubs in tow circling way around until we later saw them out on the flats
looking for clams.
Sat down again with bears all around us and opened our backpacks and had lunch. Surreal! After lunch and considerable more observing, it was time to start
back. There was no other significant wildlife to be seen, just a ...
