Not long and the boards will come off the buildings on the spit, and the small shops will begin the season here in Homer. It's a short season, three good months with May and September being the wind up and wind down of the Summer. The Salty Dawg Saloon is open .. I'm not sure when it opened this year, but I stopped in for one of Homer Brewing's finest yesterday afternoon.
It's kinda fun feeling the anticipation in the small town as the shopkeepers are getting ready, my small part is getting two airplanes ready for the bear viewing season. This is my second season working with Kbay Air in Homer, the little yellow building in the photo above is our office on the Homer Spit.
Anyone finding their way here over the Summer please stop in to say hi .. and if you're feeling adventurous, come see the bears in the Katmai Wilderness.
