I won’t be losing any weight this summer.
We heard about this great bakery in Soldotna called The Moose is Loose. After reading the rave reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to go there. The reviews were right, there’s some great stuff here. We had an apple fritter and a bear claw that were to die for, then bought some cookies to go. And the best part is that we have to return this way, on this very road that goes right by the bakery, so we will definitely make this a stop again.
Besides the Russian Orthodox church we saw in Kenai, there is another one at Ninilchik, close to Homer. This one is one of the most popular tourist sites on the Kenai Peninsula. Both of these churches are active churches still.
Finally, we made it to Homer. There are several RV parks here and somehow we found ourselves in the most expensive one. It’s located on the Homer Spit and we like it so we splurged.
The “Spit” is a small point of land that extends into a body of water. This one is about 4 miles long. Heritage Park is somewhere around Mile 3.
Since we are in the “Halibut Fishing Capital of the World” we HAD TO go out for a halibut dinner at one of the restaurants here on the Spit. We decided on Captain Pattie’s Fish House. We have had halibut before and thought that was good, but this has spoiled us forever now. Melt-in-your-mouth fresh and properly prepared 🙂
It’s been cloudy all day, as you can see by the pictures, but was comfortable enough to be out with just a sweater or light jacket. Now it’s raining as I type this. I hope it clears up tomorrow.
When I was growing up on Long Island, the Rogers family lived across the street, they moved to Florida and now Homer, Alaska has Kenny Rogers and his daughter commercial fishing there. It’s great to see what the town looks like. Thanks.
Thanks for reading and liking. 🙂
