With a two and a half mile hike before us, we do not bring the heavy Nikon, but instead have our smart phones for cameras. We really want to photograph Willie's Tug, but cannot see our house from here, as the ridge between Snoring Bay and Fossil Bay blocks the view.
We walk lively, we climb a few somewhat challenging inclines -- but nothing like Cap Sante Bluff! Or Homfray, Mary! We stop ever so often to photograph the awesome scenery.

One of the most picturesque is a maze with shrubbery taller than our heads, but no photo here as we think we hear mosquitoes -- hurry along. I capture this part of the trail in my memory.
Herb has the Run Keeper app on his phone set for hiking, telling us how far we have come, showing our course on its map, so we know how much farther to the point. Excitement builds as we near the end of the trail, yet see there is more ahead.
Are we there yet?
We see a marker below and get 'proof' that we went all the way. Oh, there's more -- we agree where we will stop.
A zoom will reveal beautiful Mt. Baker which appears tiny to the left of the small island in the background as the rays of the sun glisten her snow.
Glorious colors paint the sky at day's end, as Willie's Tug swings to the west. 'Night, all.
