12/30/11 Sears Island
Still icy around here so we thought Sears Island might be a good choice and the timing was right tide-wise . This time we followed the shore to the jetty and then took the road with a short walk to the Homestead Trail to take us back to the shore for lunch.
There was a fair amount of ice about, especially where small streams run out of the interior and into the ocean, but most was easily got around.
I had been asked about the rock formations that were the source of some past pictures and had promised him pictures. This is one of them. I wanted Kelly for scale but she is not cooperative about posing so I had to throw treats to get her into the picture.
And more rocks from different locations.
Waiting for me to change a lens.
This was the reflection we viewed while having our lunch.
A nice hike. Kelley likes the difference from the woods and does a lot of exploring. She is wary of ice and goes slowly like me and is startled when thin ice breaks under her step. 3 1/4 hours
