Leaving Homer

Before we leave Homer we take a drive up to the Wynn Nature Center. It is a beautiful day as most of our days in Homer have been. We arrive for one of the guided hikes. It is a fast paced hike. Lots of roots to hop over in the narrow trail. We stop to listen for birds whose faint trills I cannot hear. We learn about flowers that are not blooming yet. Things are later than down in town in front of the Pratt Museum. The high viewing platform is a great place to see eagles soar. 

 Watermelon berry, even the plant tastes like watermelon. 

 Willow roses are caused by a midge.

Our guide

A great view
Today we will go to the Homer Farmer's Market again then head north.
