The Coldest Winter I Ever Spent Was a Summer in Homer, Alaska

early autumn fog
cold, damp, disorienting
thick, swirling blanket.




You'd never know from this picture that a town and large bay of water are sitting underneath that fog bank.

Dinner last night: tamale pie, green salad

You need to ask my hubby about Homer, AK. If I'm not mistaken that is where they "landed" after riding a ferry from Kodiak on his first mission trip there.

You know he LOVES Alaska but he absolutely HATED that ferry ride. It was overnight and nowhere to get comfy....Don't know how much they actually saw of Homer, but they did not ride the ferry on the return trip this year. They flew in and out of Kodiak instead!

The title of you post today totally had me hooked. The picture reminded me of the musical Brigadoon. Ever seen that super old movie? :)

That is impressive. And beautiful. And just a little too cold looking for me.

Ok, I have to say it since nobody else has:

"I've looked at clouds from both sides now..."

Ok, got that out of my system!

What a shot! I've always wanted to visit Homer Alaska. I would love to catch a halibut and mail it home for healthy seafood all winter. Some day. It is on my bucket list!
