Looking to avoid deer flies we decide to try Sears. We would also beat the heat with an early start as low tide was 7:40. At high tide parts of the shore that is walkable is under water.
What we find on the shore varies quite a bit from visit to visit and today there was not a lot, but here are a few. No deer flies on the shore !
Stones someone had placed on a large boulder
Wild morning glory
Empty crab shell
Kelley had found some fresh water near the start and din't seem very interested in the ocean - we were walking well above the water. I walked down and she went in but only briefly - she prefers fresh water.
More things we saw
Largest rose hips I have seen - the largest was ping pong ball size
I don't know these flowers
The road from the jetty and the Homestead Trail had a few deer flies but not really bad.
When we got back to the shore Kelley went in again
Not a bad outing - Kelley seemed good, the temperature was comfortable, and it was quite peaceful. 1 3/4 hours
