The peninsula is a bee hive of activity during the summer as tourists from as close as Anchorage and as far away as Europe arrive. When the salmon start into Cook Inlet, the fishermen start trolling for the tasty meat. Halibut are not far behind and the charter operators begin soaking bait for their clients.
The eagles of Homer occupy the spit along with the campers on the beach.
In Seward (Soo-ard) the residents prepare for the rainy season and the visiting sightseers are looking for a sea lion, whale or puffin to photograph.
The canneries hire workers to process commercial fish and small camp grounds pop up around them.
In the winter I enjoy snowshoe and cross country skiing or a warm drink in front of the fireplace, Especially when it's 20 below zero!
During the winter months the peninsula is alive with activity from snowmachiners, dog mushers and ice fishers. Hardy souls brave temperatures from +30 to -30 to participate in these activities.
