Somewhere Saturday- Homer Spit, Alaska

The Homer Spit, Alaska

A Day's Catch in Homer

In 2010, my dad and I drove from Missouri to Alaska (an 10,000+ mile road trip!) we went to Homer, a town my dad knew from Deadliest Catch, so, we spent a couple of days exploring this area.  The fishing industry is not only a part of everyday life here, but also a large tourism industry.  This photo was taken on the spit (the tiny strip of land that stretches out into the harbor) and this guy was putting out their daily catch.

‘Somewhere Saturdays’ are short and simple posts: just a picture from a place I’ve been with a very brief explanation, but there is a link to the longer post above.

    I lived in Fairbanks, Alaska for five years. I flew in my first time, and when I left for the last time, we drove from Fairbanks all the way down to Shreveport, Louisiana. If I could, I would go back in a heartbeat. I miss the quirkiness that is Alaska.

      Alaska is really incredible! I’m envious that you got to be there for 5 years! I know that that’s a long, long, long drive! I’m sure you were glad to be home! Thanks for reading and commenting!
