Just across the inlet are two active volcanoes... Mt. Illiamna which last erupted in 1876 and is still constantly spewing steam and fumes and Mt. Redoubt which last erupted in 2009 and wreaked havoc with air travel for some time. Both volcanoes are visible from the lodge on a clear day.
One afternoon we drove to Homer and another we went eagle watching.
Each night had a fabulous menu and the last night was prime rib and lobster.
He is now approaching 60 but was just as funny and wacky when he was 6.
DH did get to go out one day and caught enough halibut that we brought it home frozen and will enjoy it this winter.
