Sharing moments in time…

Horseback in Homer


So today I did my first horseback ride in about 20 years.  It was a gorgeous day here in Homer Alaska and it was shirtsleeve weather for most of the morning.  I hopped on my trusty steed “Tony” and pretty much let him do a lot of the driving.  We were mostly down by the end of Kachemak Bay near Homer and the scenery was incredible.  Not too much unusual in the way of wildlife but we did run across a group of wild horses on the tidal flats.  I managed to get this photo of a couple of them with a flock of Kitty wakes taking off in back of them.

Thanks to our friend Jay for his incredible hospitality and local knowledge and to our friend Sarah for the ice cream detour!  Tomorrow its on to Hallo Bay and hopefully lots of Coastal Brown Bears and other creatures.  Signing off for now…

    • Thanks Siggi – it was a beautiful morning (unfortunately it was about the last nice weather we’ve seen). I’ll have lots to share when we get back.
