Lucked out with the weather for a nice stroll along the shoreline for our Duke-Jack Point walk. Yellow brick road shows our route quite clearly, I think.
Also a couple of Heron Rookery shots from last weeks Cow Bay outing. -- DeNNis.
|Parked vehicles in lot (bottom right), followed trail to point and return.|
Our usual greeter meets us at the trailhead,
umbrella in hand - just in case.
|Start with a little staircase climb just to get warmed up.|
|Faux petroglyph still looking good.|
|Now we know why they are called "ARTbutus" trees.|
|The keeper of the rock.|
|Just in case we were getting cooled off too much.|
|The "Coastal Inspiration" leaves without us.|
|Jack Point Light.|
|Duke Point Ferry dock - just vacated by the Coastal Inspiration.|
|Star Lilies - become their own umbrellas.|
|And with this weather comes the fungi.|
|From Cow Bay walk - lots of Heron nests.|
|But no young yet.|
|Preparing the "Nursery".|
|Also a few swans in the area.|
