They hung around out there and got back at around 2:00 p.m. - we each got to take home 16 pounds of Halibut. We had our first tonight.
Tomorrow we are off to Anchorage for three nights.
... knew the outfitter we planned to use on Sunday and gave us tips on times and where to meet them. We definitely felt taken care of and that was appreciated.
Next thing we did was explore the Homer Spit. This is an interesting part of town that extends about 5 miles into the Kachemak Bay, and not only has a lot of tourist destinations there, but many guide services, restaurants and fish processing areas. We got to see where ...
