We missed a wonderful breakfast and got up early to drive to Homer. It is about a three-hour drive from Cooper Landing. We were rewarded by seeing a bull moose before we even got to Sterling. We had been looking for moose since leaving Denali National Park over a week earlier. As we got into Homer, we saw a sign indicating a scenic overlook. We stopped and parked and enjoyed a beautiful view of Kachemak Bay and the beautiful Kenai Mountains beyond the Bay. It was a wonderful view. Because we missed breakfast, our next stop was The Duncan House Diner in Homer. We had a wonderful, but late, breakfast and then set out to explore Homer. We drove around Homer and saw lots of interesting sights. Then we drove out on the Homer Spit, parked, and took a long walk on the beach. The beach was mostly rocks, instead of sand, and the rocks were interesting and I had to collect some of them for the grandkids. I also found some seashells. The views from the beach were so very beautiful, that they are hard to describe. After a long walk we drove back into town and stopped at the Alaska Islands & Ocean Visitor Center. Before we knew it, it was time for a late lunch, and we ate, and drove back onto the Spit for one last visit. After another lengthy walk and a chance to watch the people fish, it was time to head back to Cooper Landing. We were sad to have to leave so soon, because we realized that we should have spent an additional two to three days in Homer. We will plan better on the next trip to the Kenai Peninsula.
