8/17/10 Petit Manan
Cool and foggy when we started out. The Hollingsworth Trail to the shore is short but varied.
Low tide and fog. When we got to the shore we left the trail and headed down the shoreline which does not have a trail.
I am continually impressed with how life appears in the, apparently, most inhospitable places.
Another, this one in bloom.
Apparently people do come this way and have stuck lobster trap buoys on this tree.
Kelley finds a pond
The fog started to dissipate and it became much warmer so we turned back the way we had come and found this bee on a thistle.
Not fresh water but cooling anyway
By the time we got back to the trail the fog was back in place
We had passed Pigeon Hill Sanctuary on the drive in and never having been there, and in spite of the fog, made the short climb to the summit. Again the fog lifted somewhat but you can see the fog still along the coast.
An interesting hike with a variety of terrains and weather. 3-1/2 hours
