From the second we were picked up via boat, we felt welcomed. There was nothing we didn't love about the "camp." From the food, to the hospitality, to the hikes to the adventures. Since I've returned, I've always planned to, and will, go back.

... oil into the sea. The oil which killed wildlife and polluted beaches along the Kenai Peninsula is still evident today and is the subject of a most informative display at Homer’s Pratt Museum, itself evidence that Homer is more than just a “drinking town with a fishing problem” (spotted in the Spit’s notorious Salty Dawg Saloon).
And Good Friday, 2014 will be twenty five years after the last disaster hit the ...
... the fog it doesn’t look like this will happen. So we go to a water taxi and schedule one hour on the bay. The scheduler suggests we go at 1:30. Sure enough about 1:15, the fog clears and we are out for a great one hour tour on a small boat with only 6 people.
Our guide takes us to Gull Island. Off the island, we see tufted puffin, horned puffin, otter and several other birds I’ve never seen before. It’s a perfect day on the bay.
