Is this at hi tide Bryan? Great shot again. Nice capture. Cheers Danny
Yeah Danny, it was quite high. It made for a tougher hike. I've done it several times, but usually we're down on the hard, flat sand. Eleven miles (about 17.5 km for those of you north of 49th parallel) on the loose, sloped sand and pebbles you get at high tide seems a lot longer.
Regards ... Bryan
Bryan, Great shot and walk. We have done the one at Sidney which is much shorter. You are correct, it is hard to walk on the soft ground.
Bryan, is a spectacular view of an enchanting place. cordial greetings. a.c.
Oh! it's wonder!!
wonderful shot ！！！
Best greetings from China ! 行者无路
Awfully late, but thank you Gabe, Antonio, Miyo, and 行者无路.
No problem Bryan, I am not usually that fast either!
Still a great picture!
Very nice view, interesting spit!
Thank you E.gis. It is an interesting place. A 5/12 mile solid sand spit formed by the outflow of the Dungeness river into the Straits of Juan De Fuca. You have to hike on the outside (north side, the right side in this view) because the inside is a bird sanctuary.
We were at the spit Bryan during my sons spring break. We started the hike, never made it to the lighthouse. It is one major trip, I hope nezt time we will plan better...
Very nice scene and picture Bryan...
Best wishes, Ahmet
It is quite a hike, Gabe. Sorry I'm so late responding ... I'm behind on everything these days :) It's a really nice hike though, if you have the time and remember to bring water and a lunch.
Beautiful landscape and shot, LIKE, Dino.
wonderful natural language, very good record
Greetings and best wishes, Dezső
A beautiful panorama, Bryan. I love all that blue sea and sky. Y*. We have a Dungeness here in England, on the south coast. Similar look of remoteness. There's a nuclear power station there - and a bird sanctuary!
Best wishes, Brian.
Thank you very much Dino!
Thank you as well Dezső!
And thank you Brian, particularly for the Y*. No nuclear power here :) but the most of this 5 mile spit, except for the outer beach, is a bird sanctuary. I was aware you had a Dungeness. No coincidence. The names of places in coastal Pacific Northwest seem to be about 40% from the voyages of Vancouver (Puget Sound, Mt. Rainier, Dungeness, ...), about 40% Native American (Seattle, Tacoma, Snohomish, ...), and 20% everything else.
