(Retroblogged on 2-20-2011) ~ David


    The Homer Spit is a five mile long, narrow, gravel piece of land that sticks out from Homer, Alaska into the middle of Kachemak Bay.  The Spit is jammed full of: a major harbor, small tourist shops, fishing charters, kayak tour companies, a campground, hotel, condos, canneries, derelict boats, sea life, sea birds, people and the one of the highest concentrations of Bald Eagles in the world.  I love Homer and I love the Spit.  "Page 1 from Homer" had photos of the beach; this page contains photos of shops, derelict boats, the Homer Harbor and a few other shots from around the Homer area.

Homer Harbor

(Boat names for Google indexing)


Short sleeves at the Homer Harbor.  Every time I visit Homer I take few walks around the boat harbor.  I love looking at the boats and for some reason am thrilled by fishing boat photos.  The photos below are from three or four walks to and around the docks.




The girls are running because the picture taking was over and we could go to dinner!

The Spit from a few miles away.  The harbor dominates the Spit.  The derelict boats are to the left of the first visible bend in the road.  Past the harbor are the condos that are next to the camp ground.  To the left of the condos is Lands End Hotel.


Homer Odd Shots


A funky cabin near the dry dock.


Shots from a Mexican restaurant in Homer.  I messed up the white balance/color and was using an old film manual lens; at F1.8 I missed the focus more often than not, but these shots capture the joy of getting in from the cold for the first time in a couple days.





Mom's Old Homes


My mother used to live near Anchor Point.  The first cabin has been abandon and is falling apart and overgrown.  I spent a few summers here and would often hike through the woods to the beach from this cabin.



I helped build this cabin below:
