12/4/12 Sears Island

A cold, gray, damp morning but not raining which it is supposed to do tommorow  so we want to get in a hike today. The tides are right so it's Sears Island.

We started along the east shore and followed that to the Blue Trail. That took us inland to the gravel road. There are several unmarked narrow trails that cut across from that road to the Island Road. I was trying to decide whether to take one of those  and then the Green trail back over to the shore or just continue up to the Homestead Trail when Kelley spotted a trail she wanted to take so we just went the way she wanted to go.  Surprise- rather than taking us to the other road it took us back to the shore which we followed to the jetty - we were not as far along the gravel road as I had thought. From there we followed the road to the Homestead Trail and that back to the shore where we had our lunch.

Some things we saw along the way

After lunch, one last dip in the ocean and we returned to our car.

An interesting hike in spite of the dismal ( only to me) weather .  3  hours
