Spring in the PNW

Cloudy skies...
and some surf...
little bit of clear sky in the distance...
but mostly clouds...
and a bit more of this.

Cape Alava - Sand Point Loop - 3/30/2013

First backpack trip of the year. I had originally meant to make it to Yellow Banks, but ended up making the hike down from Cape Alava to Sand Point instead. I was concerned about making in around some headlands before the tide was too high so we decided to set up camp at Sand Point. Shortly after we set up camp I noticed that the tide was not coming up, but actually on the way out, and would continue to drop for a few hours. Not sure what tide book I was getting my info from, regardless it was a rookie mistake. 

Even though the camping didn't go as planned and the surf was tiny, Court and I managed to make the best of it. How can you go wrong when it's still March and you're sitting on the beach wearing shorts and a t-shirt?

Welcome to Cape Alava

Small Plane to San Jose

They asked me to sit up front and give them a few tips on flying.

Looks like some potential if if wasn't croc infested. And I don't mean the shoes.
