The day started with enough rain to keep me from walking along the shore but not enough to keep me from walking two blocks to breakfast. Two Sisters Bakery was highly recommended and they deserve every bit of praise they got. That cinnamon roll back at the "Centre of the Galactic Cluster" was pretty good but nowhere near this good. And, on top of all the good stuff to eat, they support a Little Free Library and a reading bench.

I did make a pass through what signs indicated was Homer's business section but I stayed in the car and shot pictures through the rain. Obviously not all of Homer's fun establishments are in Old Town or on the Spit.

This is the Visitors Center for the 3.4 million acre Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge of which the Aleutian islands are a part. My drive through the business section was partly just to keep me busy until this place opened and I'm glad I did. Glad that I saw that section of Homer and glad I hung around long enough to get in here.

The drive back to Anchorage was uneventful and mostly wet. Pat was home when I got there. We headed out after Deb arrived and I followed them into a couple of breweries. Both King Street Brewing and Midnight Sun Brewing offers up some mighty fine brews and Midnight Sun serves some very good food as well. Three of Pat and Deb's offspring met us there, along with their spouses, and a good time was had by all. Yes, someday we will see the other side of Pat & Deb.
