8/3/15 Sears Island


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.

Low tide






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


 This seed head was also large - 5 or 6 inches across


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
