A-day +19 Side Trip to Seldovia

This is the final day of fun on the trip as tomorrow we drive from Homer to Anchorage to get on the big bird to come home. This will also be the last blog for a couple of days.

Today we took a boat across Kachemak Bay to the small community of Seldovia. On the way, we passed this fascinating rock. Kids, can you guess its name?

If you said "Elephant Rock", give yourself a pat on the back.

Here we are on the dock to prove we went to Seldovia.

The main reason I wanted to go was the First Annual Seldovia Invitational Chain Saw Carving Contest. It was very loud and very cool. They even gave visitors free ear plugs. Here are some examples. This one is my favorite, two eagles fighting in flight for a fish.

And this is part of a two parter with whales. They looked almost complete and this lady is sanding the smaller of the two smooth.

I'm staying up as late as possible tonight to try to get a picture without flash around midnight. It is impossible to sleep up here because the sun seems to never set.

Hope you enjoyed the trip as much as we did. Posted by Picasa
