At Home in Homer, Alaska – Final Haiku

Alaska summer

We arrived in Homer, June 18th, in the afternoon. Our trip was blessed with good weather, no accidents, or car mishaps. The drive was challenging for me but a good introduction to Alaska driving. The beach is just across the street from our apartment and provides a relaxing and refreshing seaside walk. Across the bay are mountains, active volcanoes, and glaciers.

The library, where I’m posting from today, is filled with art, native Alaska wood, and creative metal carvings. The post office has stained glass window designs of eagles and the sea. Today we attended a street art fair and met several friendly artists and welcoming members of the Homer Arts Council. So, even though we’re still sleeping on the floor on our thin mats and sleeping bags, we do feel at home and fortunate to be living in such a beautiful town.


We call this Brian’s Beach


And Sky’s sea and mountains

  3. Thanks for bringing us along on your adventure. I’m glad you arrived safely and look forward to reading more words inspired by those mountains across the way.

    • Today our “stuff” arrives, so we’ll end more than a week of sleeping on the floor. I start nursing on Wednesday – and we’re still waiting for Internet to connect at home. But, it’s still beautiful and I’m happy to be settling in. Thanks for following and your participation in the journey with your comments.

  4. What a view from your balcony! Thanks for sharing your exciting journey; a street art fair must have been a great welcome to your new home, too!

    • Yes, today over a week of sleeping on the floor ends with the arrival of our “stuff.” Start work on Wednesday and soon will have internet at home and be posting and following in a week or so. Thanks for taking the journey with us.

    • Thanks for following Sean. I’m sitting here looking out at green hills and blue sky from my room and every morning the sea greets me. Now, it’s back to nursing – and of course more poems to come.
