We got many amazing photos of seacoasts and seascapes on two different outings during our Alaska visit:

  • our boat ride from Homer to Halibut Cove and back, and
  • our sightseeing cruise in Kenai Fjords National Park

On this page are the best of the scenic shots from the Homer/Halibut Cove excursion.

Here are the Kenai Fjords scenic photos

You can see more photos from both of these locations on these other pages:

Here we are, in the Homer harbor, aboard the ferryboat we took across Kachemak Bay to Halibut Cove, the Danny J.




Below you can see another picture of this bustling scene, then a view as we set off on our little trip.

The voyage wasn't just a matter of getting from point A to point B. Scenery along the way was fantastic!

On the left is the gangway leading down to the boat. I think that's Sally in the back...

We took advantage of the Alaskan art here and bought a nice piece at the gallery you see above and below here. It's now framed and on the wall over the piano in our living room...
