One of the other things that we did in Homer was go to the other side of Kachamek Bay and go for a hike to Grewingk Glacier.
We could see the glacier from Homer on a clear day and its a great day hike so we took a water taxi over to the other side. There are all these businesses that basically run boats back and forth all day. The boats are designed so they can get right up in to the break water or pull up to a dock.
Sand on the water taxi. That front part of the boat lowers down.
Dad and the mountains.
Here is the front of the boat down as the boat was coming into shore.
The hike started out through pretty forest.
We saw some flowers and butterflies.
Along the way we caught glimpses of the glacier.
We ate lunch on the beach of the glacier lake. Dad also proved that he can nap anywhere.
While Dad napped we looked around at the little icebergs that had cleaved from the glacier and other stuff.
We also got a half way decent family photo before we left.
When we were done we hiked out on a different trail and got picked up by our water taxi.
