â€œCocka-doodle-doo!â€ The old rooster perched at the top of the fence crowed. Eyelids peeled open as everyone got ready for the busy day ahead of us. Empty stomachs trudged through the Pratt Museum. The museum was full of interesting facts about natives from Alaska. What I found most intriguing was the botanical garden and the homestead cabin used in the 1930â€™s.
Â Â Â Â Â We then arrived back at the beautiful campground (or should I say farm) for an extremely small â€œbrunch.â€ The lunch/breakfast consisted of only one pancake and left many campers wanting more.Â At last the most exciting part of the day arrived; shopping! The vans spread out along the Spit of Homer and all of the participants shopped until they dropped. My shopping bag was about to burst open when we finally arrived back at the vans to take some warm showers.
Six dollars was worth jumping into the steaming hot shower and finally feeling clean. We shoved a delicious dinner of Sloppy Joes down our throats before visiting the Eveline Line. The Eveline Line is a trail that takes you through a meadow consisting of a wide assortment of wild flowers.
The walk was very calming. Although we have been in Alaska for nearly three weeks I did not actually realize how empowering Alaska really was. Seeing wildlife in its purest form is not something many people get to experience. I am nothing but grateful for this amazing opportunity to explore the beauty of nature and begin to appreciate Mother Natureâ€™s inspiring creations. With new knowledge etched into our brains we fell asleep to the sound of light rain trickling on the side of our tents.
