Ebey's house and blockhouse, beginning of hike
We did Ebey's landing today--from the cemetery, to the house and blockhouse, down to the beach and water, and then up the bluff and back to the cemetery. That seemed to be the opposite of what everyone else was doing. Rained earlier, so most of the grass and plants were wet, glad I did not wear shorts. A bit damp periodically too as the sky let loose a few times. Took a little less than an hour and a half.
Sammie, our dog, was fascinated by the seaweed, dead fish, crabs and ? left at the tide mark.
The bluff and fields were covered in wildflowers. A few sea lions (or seals) were playing in the water. Quite a few blue herons flew overhead as well.
