7/21/11 Ship Harbor - Wonderland Area
Prediction was for highs in the 90's with high humidity so we headed for the ocean. We took the Ship Harbor Trail to the ocean and then followed the shore to Wonderland and beyond that, again following the shore (there is not a trail) . This was a fairly leisurely exploration and the temperatures were much cooler than at home due to breezes coming off the water.

At some points the shore rocks were large and difficult for Kelley so we would do a little bushwhacking further inshore and then return to the shore. Mostly this was dry scrub but we came upon this little area of lush grass and large vegetation that seemed out of place and a little magical.
Someone had obviously arranged these stones but we liked them

We returned to the Wonderland Trail and took that to the road and the road back to where we had parked. A very enjoyable outing. 2 3/4 hours
