We Want You!

We Want Your Feedback that is!
Now that it is off season
we do not have pictures of the bears
or info on events to blog about.
So we would like to hear from you 
as to what you would like for us to blog about!

Are you a Homer, Alaska, Junkie and want to know more about things to do in town when you visit?
Do you like to be quizzed on the birds at the home office bird feeder?
Are you a weather buff and want to know Homer's climate any given day?
Or do you want to follow Hallo Bay's staff as to what they are doing during off season?

Please give us some ideas for future blogs!
We want to hear from you!

Snow Storm at Camp

Last Saturday as we were taking down camp the snow started falling,
and it didn't stop until 5 inches were on the ground.
Check out a 360 degree view of the snow covered beach at camp
