Labour Day Drive to Port Hilford and Little Liscomb

I’ve written my quiz for the last section for my course FOUR times and I’m still not satisfied with my mark. Luckily Jeff was game this afternoon for getting-the-heck-outta-the-house so we headed out, destination unknown, armed with the camera and binoculars.

The first place we ended up was the beach at Port Hilford. We’ve driven by many times, but I have never gone out on the beach. Except for the odd stone, the beach is all sand. It’s a beautiful beach!! With hardly any people!

To get to the beach, you have to cross a little creek:

After that, the hidden gem – a sand beach that you can’t see from the road!

Jeff can always find treasures on the beach:

The beach was crawling with shore birds. These two were really bold, and thought they’d be brave enough to run by me.

But then they chickened out and flew past me.

Empty shell, no one home.

Then we ended up at the Little Liscomb shore. No sand here – all rocks. We’ve been here many times before. Great spot, no people.
