Plenty of beach south of Point Partridge.

We’re back to that time of year where the tide can be low enough during the day to allow for a nice beach walk.

Looking south to Perego’s Lagoon

Camp Casey barracks in the distance.

Some wave action out there.

Today’s images were taken at Fort Ebey.

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

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.
