4/21/14 Sears Island

Mix of sun and clouds with clouds increasing- around 50 but windy so it felt much colder.

Coming onto the island

Starting down the east shore

Kelley only got in the ocean once because the surf increased and she does not like waves



First wildflowers of the year!

When we came to the Blue Trail we got off the beach and out of the wind. I was tired of the rocks- the beach is mostly rocks- and I think Kelley was too. We found this skunk cabbage just coming up. Not a pretty picture but new growth.

We then took the gravel road to the Homestead Trail and that back to the shore for lunch. We were spoiled by yesterdays weather but we still got a hike in and that was good.  2  1/4 hours
