Too bad it was such a clear morning. I left the Brinno in a spot I've never tried before, but there really wasn't anything to see. This was my first time on the island in a while since lately I've preferred to head North toward the slough, and it was lovely to see it again. Too bad I couldn't do a complete loop thanks to the overgrown trail. Same thing with the hunting trail, I didn't get very far because it wasn't worth fighting the vines.
Since I Haven't been there in a while, I forgot the mosquito repellent. While being attacked by mosquitoes is one of the only times I'll pull my hood up, because I think I look a bit too much like something you may have seen in Zardoz if you also love bad movies.
On the way back to the car, I realized the gate that stops people from driving North along the route I like to walk most of the time was open. This was my first time seeing it open and I really wished I'd gone that way because I bet there's a new phase of construction or something.
