Hi all, above is my earlier post about our trip for next year. Now I am wondering whether we should skip Homer given the long drive, and add the time somewhere else. While we don't mind driving to get somewhere we really want to go, all of us prefer being out and about, and i am questioning whether the drive to homer will be worth the time. Obviously, no one can decide that for us, but would love your opinions :). The things I am interested in doing in Homer are: kayaking, which seems to be relatively calm and sheltered, which is important for us; hikes at kachemak bay state park; tide pooling; spending time at halibut cove. Can i find these experiences/similar experices somewhere closer to the places we will already be? With respect to the kayaking, as I am prone to motion sickness and we will be with two kids, I would prefer kayaking in a more protected area (bay or cove or similar) but still be able to see wildlife. With respect to hiking, I know there is hiking, etc, in many of the places we will be going, but is there anything about kachemak bay that is unique or is there somewhere else we could get a similar experience, that would be more worthwhile given the driving distances? Thank you!
