August trip to Homer

Lisa and I took a trip back in early August to Homer. Homer is a picturesque town on the southwest side of the Kenai Peninsula. It is a huge fishing community because it is located on Cook Inlet and only a couple dozen miles from the Pacific Ocean. It is especially known for the halibut...which can be HUGE!! We stayed at a B&B overlooking Kachemak Bay. Again, it was picturesque. I've asked a lot of people who have lived in Alaska for a while where their favorite place to visit and more often than not, the answer is Homer.
