5/13/11 Sears Island

We were going to have this as an off day but it was a nice day ( two in a row) and rain is predicted for the next several days so we went to Sears Island. When we arrived the tide was in so we couldn't walk the shore (our plan) and did an inland walk instead.

We started up the paved road ( closed to cars) and followed it beyond the paved section to the jetty . There is finally lots of new growth.

Including these tent caterpillars

On the way back we took the Homestead Trail which took us to the shore and the tide was out enough that we could explore the shore for awhile. Kelley was excited by all the smells and the occasional tidbit to eat and the chance to get in the ocean.

A nice hike on a pretty day. 2-1/4 hours

  4. Hi penbayman - Thanks for commenting. We walked by 'the old homestead' but there is little left.
