On Tuesday afternoon, I packed up my car for the night and headed south towards Homer, Alaska. I have some customers in the peninsula, and I honestly didn’t want to deal with airfare and a rental car this week. The fact that the sun is setting later each day, and we’ve been having warm, beautiful weather made me more excited then ever to escape Anchorage’s bustling city life (I know people in cities with 500,000 people. You can laugh at me) and escape to some isolated land.
I feel like I took a million pictures, and blew up everyones Instagram feeds (P.S. Follow me on Instagram if you like seeing me brag about pretty things in Alaska!)
So I figured what better way to share them with friends, family, and internet framily then through my blog!
So here goes:
Sadly, I didn’t get to go in any art shops while in Homer. I’m saving those for a trip down with my girlfriends. Or if Matt & I take a trip down, I can go shopping while he fishes!
Bonus fact about the Cosmic Kitchen: They serve breakfast, lunch, AND mexican! Finally, a restaurant Matt & I can agree on.
Check out this super creepy video on how to actually pronounce Kasilof (or just watch the video I posted on Instagram!)
In Cooper Landing, I saw some guys fly fishing and fishing from a kayak on the Kenai River. As it was a super pretty, 40 degree day, I really wanted to join them and kayak around. Disappointingly, I saw no bears on the Kenai river. I guess I’ll have to wait for salmon season. Overall, amazingly beautiful drive. I also had an excellent day at work and had great interactions with my customers. Perfect cherry on a 27-hour time span.
Here’s a picture showing where the different cities I stopped in are on a map. I know Alaskan geography sounds foreign to anyone who hasn’t been here. (Prior to living in Alaska, I was so confused about city names in AK!)
How did you survive your wednesday this week?
