Homer, AK

Spent today in Homer. Can't say that I ever expected to be here on a cruise. Town of a couple thousand literally "at the end of the road". We went on a wildlife viewing boat trip. Saw sea otter, seal, eagles, mountain goat, puffins, muirs (sp?), cormorants, black tipped kitty winks (sp?), loads of other kinds of birds.

For anyone who watches Deadliest Catch, we saw the Time Bandit. Also saw Readout Volcano - the one that erupted in the last few months and delayed flights into/from Anchorage. Saw several other volcanos that apparently erupt every 10 to 15 years.

We head to Kodiak tomorrow. Will be on another wildlife excursion.
