The winds we faced here might very well be the strongest winds I've ever encountered outside of a hurricane. Leaning into the wind was required to keep one's balance. Our multiple layers of clothing made all the differenc in the world.
Sea foam was blown from a couple of coves north of our path and rained down around us. We spent a little bit of time enjoying the game of dodging the flying foam. It was quite impressive.
Despite that, Coppertone and I braved the elements and made the half mile walk down the paved road from the parking area to the lighthouse. After touring the calm and warm interior of the buildings there we mostly made a quick retreat back to the car. We'll have to enjoy the remainder of the trails here another time.
