Yesterday I wanted to get out and since I wasn't up to paddling, I decided to go for a drive. It was nice to get out and enjoy the island and this time we even went around the other side.
This was our destination, the Beavertail Lighthouse. It is a large area with lots of parking and walking paths.
Lots of rocky cliffs with places to walk down, to get closer to the water, but I was happy staying up top.
This time we went into the lighthouse, mostly photos and a shop, but they also had a mini aquarium building, with local fish and a friendly sand shark.
This is the area they were fishing in, not a good place to be when the waves are coming in. This is one area where people have been swept in and drowned because of the rocks and the undertow.
It was a beautiful day out and the breezes were a nice way to fight off the humidity. The sailboats were taking advantage of the winds.
On the way home, we stopped by the mill stream and I took a photo of the lotus pond. The flowers are beautiful and the leaves are as big as elephant ears. It is almost like an alien landscape. I hope every one had a wonderful weekend.
