Continues hot so, once more we headed for the cooler coast. We started for the west shore. Before we actually got there Kelley found some brackish water to get into. This is a stream that drains into the ocean at low tide and then fills up as the tide comes in. You can cross at low tide - at higher tides you are in water- the tide is approaching low here.
Wasn't a lot on the shore today - a sea plant
and a wildflower
another shot of the shore
Before we turn inland on the Green Trail and encounter deer flies - not a lot but there had been none.
But she did find some water in a small stream
We took the Homestead Trail across to the east shore and I thought we would follow it south for a bit but Kelley had had enough.
So she got in the water for a bit and we headed for the car.
Not a bad hike in spite of the deer flies. We met a few people and Kelley did well until she was ready to quit. 1 1/2 hours
