Logbook: Rugged Point

There are some places that inspire you to run naked through the surf into the Pacific Ocean. Rugged Point is one of those places.

The stunning beauty of the place is all on the South side which is too rough for anchoring. The anchorage on the North is quite pretty although fairly exposed. We ended up staying 2 nights – one mellow and calm, one rough and windy.

There is a short trail across the point which was loaded with huckleberries:

And then you arrive at beach after beach of white sand.

You can walk SE for quite a long way although we only walked for an hour or two.

Depending on the state of the tide there are trails that cut inland to bring you across to the next set of beaches often rigged with ropes.

Kayakers come to camp here and the tent pads are pretty nice. Tucked into the woods but with a view of the ocean.
