Our days on the Kenai Peninsula

We spent a total of five days in Seward, Alaska and saw everything we could fit into that short time. We drove all over the Kenai Peninsula on route 1, which ends in Homer, Alaska. The following pictures are just a few of the many photos we took during our time there.

This is a wheel barrel full of fish caught in Resurrection Bay in Seward, Alaska. 

Even though my son has his eyes closed, this gives you an idea of how large the fish are here. The one in the middle is a halibut.

A moose along the road in a meadow. I really thought we would see more of them, but it didn’t work out that way.

The world-famous, Salty Dawg Saloon in Homer, Alaska. In Homer, Alaska the road is straight and ends at the water. They call it the Homer Spit.

The Spit from a distance. It’s just a small slip of land splitting the water, and where it ends Route 1 ends.

Shops and stores on the Spit.  You can park here and walk along the shops buying gifts for folks back home, or you can walk behind the hopes and walk along the beach.

The water was real cold, nothing you would want to swim in.

That’s Casey on the beach.

She was watching an otter in the water cracking open oysters with a stone.

This is Spirit. He had a blood clot that paralyzed his back legs, so he gets around with wheels.

A Russian Orthodox Church and the graveyard outside.

These are a few photos of the graveyard. Notice the fences and wooden crosses. It had a very spooky feeling about it, but my wife enjoys walking through graveyards and looking at the names and dates. When we travel if we see one that looks old we stop and check it out.

On our last day we we to the Alaskan Sea Life Center in Seward, Alaska and did a behind the scenes tour. We had a wonderful time and learned so much about the inner workings of the center

   This is a sick sea lion. We were able to go back where they treat the sick and injured sea life.

This is a rehab tank of fish and starfish.

The famous Alaskan King Crab, yummy.

That’s us in our outfits for the tour.

Our day is done here.
