A short trail takes you to the beach at Fort Ebey.

Local info:

Two Bluff Trails

 

Google maps shows a route that completely avoids the beach and crosses through private property.

Nonsense.

Check the tides and maybe go when you can enjoy a cool and foggy outing. Listen to the surf, sea birds and fog horns along the way. Listen for the Point Partridge bell buoy on days with any wave action.

When the time is right, look for surfers at Point Partridge.

No crowds today at Fort Ebey.

Part of my walk took me out to Lake Pondilla, where I found this rock. I’m wondering if it had been there prior to the start of winter.

Shipping lanes were busy out there today.
