06/04/10 - Dungeness Spit

Our last hike at Dungeness Spit was a real challenge. The beach was still at its winter worst with rocks and pebbles and stones and horribly soft sand. It was rough going. On our most recent hike, things were much better. There was a lot more firm sand and a lot fewer rocks, at least for the first mile or so. Then things got rough. Still, more sand and better footing is a sign of summer.

Some of the better footing

Poorer footing further out

Some of this driftwood looks like the ribs of a great beast.

The dinghy is our one mile landmark. The dinghy has been here for years.

More fantastic driftwood

The clouds loomed dark over the mountain.

We don't think the FDIC will be much help here.
