  Last Sunset Hike

Last Sunset Hike

We plan to take a hike then enjoy the last sunset of 2017 as it sets over the ocean!  We expect to step off at 3:00 p.m. and make a loop through the Provincelands returning for sunset at 4:19 p.m. on the beach.  The terrain is sand dunes with a few long, slow climbs on the paved path.  Meet at the north end of the Herring Cove Beach parking lot.  This lot has been cut in two by the ocean.  So, you'll need to turn right from Route 6 eastbound onto Provincelands Road, pass the main entrance and continue to the next left which will take you into the end of the parking lot.  We’ll gather near the trail head in the corner of the lot.  

Please let me know you’ll join us by sending a note by December 27th to stvnwlknsn@hotmail.com with your telephone number, for the day of the hike, so I can let you know if cancellation becomes necessary.  (I don’t expect to access electronic mail in 2017 after the 27th.)  Happy New Year!
