We woke up to a light rain this morning.
After getting everything ready, we were off for breakfast at the Talkeetna Roadhouse. Chris and I have stayed overnite here on a couple of occasions. It is a taste of old Alaska but has also gotten more modern than it was the first time I was here in 1984. There is a menu now and choice of food!
The overlook just as you get to Talkeetna is one of the best views of Mt McKinley. No luck ...
... members of the community of Homer. There's a large artist population here which generally means a few fruity people floating around!
Thought about going to Sedovia on the other side of the bay but weather slightly ******, bit of cost involved and not that straight forward to get there either if you miss the scheduled ferry. Pretty sure it would look pretty similar to the boardwalk section on the spit anyway. Jeff disappointed as there are mountains and ...

From Seward we headed along the Kenai River - one of the most famous salmon and trout streams in Alaska - and one that gets a heap of fishing pressure. Still some big fish (up to 60lb salmon) are caught here each year and when we pulled into Russian River Ferry there were dozens of small float boats & rafts ...
