Monday morning Ricardo and I headed south 120 miles to Homer, AK, a major fishibg port.  But first we visited Soldatno and Ninnilchik, two picturesque fishing villages.  A beautiful ride, if a bit cool. Temperatures in the low 50s but mostly clear and even occasionally sunny.  Then on the way back we hit rain at Sterling but only for about 15 miles.  

Back at the Hutch, Shirley surprised us with a great Italian dinner.  She doesn't know it but we may just stay.  Sleeping late today, we finally got on our way to Seward about 10:00 AM.  Sewardo, only 50 miles away, is a beautiful port city with great restaurants  and shopping.  Ricardo and I had a great time.

Now we are back at the Hutch and Shirley is grilling fresh sockeyr salmon for dinner.  And I know she made a chocolate desert  this afternoon.  I really  hate to leave here.  The hospitality has been great!

But the bikes are eager to be back on the trail.   Early  Wednesday we will depart forTok, some 482 miles through the beautiful forests.  Then on to Whitehorse in the Yukon.  Friday Night should find us in Watson Lake at the Air Force Inn.  Then Saturday morning we will head south down the Cassier Highway through the beautiful British Columbian mountains.  Past Jade City, Kitwanga and then on to Hyder Alaska.  Not a bad adventure for two old men.
