1/30/16 Sears Island

Upper 20's, mostly cloudy, no wind. Because of the odd weather we have had it is difficult to guess trail conditions on our usual trails.  This morning the tides were right so we decided to try the island.

By the time we got there the sun was trying to come out.


looking inland

Kelley was not very excited about the shore and didn't even go into the water but perked up and took the lead when we took the trail into the woods

maybe she remembered this small stream

and I found a nice plant in the snow

The Homestead Trail is more open and has lost most of it's snow

It took us to the shore on the other side of the island and Kelley finally went into the ocean

 We walked for a short ways up the shore and found this driftwood structure.

The skies remained partly cloudy but with no wind it was comfortable. Kelley did well after a sluggish start and seemed to enjoy herself. 1  3/4 hours


  1. I love your photo of Kelley trying to swim in the small stream.

    1. Thanks Linda - ant water she can find

  2. Somebody put a lot of time and effort into that driftwood structure. Pretty neat!

    1. Hi Sue. Yes. I don't see a lot of driftwood along that shore
