3097-TL1 Time Bandit
The Spit ~ Homer, Alaska
The Discovery Channel produced the reality television show that we all fell in love with; "Deadliest Catch" ! It aired for 9 seasons and was filmed in my favorite town in Alaska: Homer! The filming was amazing and captured much of the local Bering Sea during summer and winter seasons where Andy and Jonathon Hillstrand captain The Time Bandit for crab and much more. If you are lucky you can catch a glimpse of these guys fishing for salmon off the Panhandle Of Alaska all the way to Homer. From time to time you will hear a newscast about it rescuing other ships in distress, too.
If you ever saw the show "Deadliet Catch", you would know that it's not all just fun and games fishing in the seasons of Alaska for a living, it can be quite dangerous. Lots of ships sadly sink and many a mariners have lost their lives to these stormy seas.
God Speed to our men of the seas.
Shops, restaurants, bars and fishing guide venues line up on both sides of The Spit in Homer. The Time Bandit Shop is tiny, tiny, tiny, and yet crowded with folks running in to buy something to remember both Homer and the television show! I took a close up shot since I really wanted to focus on just this shop without distractions around it.
