24 of 75 – Green Bay
Tue June 7, 2022
There is hiking trail between Green Bay and Broad Cove. On the map it is called Bear Trap Road.
Because it was low tide, we walked for 2 km almost all on the beach. On the way bay we followed the path – which involved walking in long grass (a favourite place for ticks). We did find a several of the bigger ticks on us when we got to the van, a couple of which were embedded. Fortunately, we have a tick removal kit in the van and we were able to remove the embedded ones. The others just brush off. We also brushed Cali to try to remove any that she may have picked up.
The hike itself is quite beautiful but it was a very difficult beach to walk on – the sand and rocks were mostly soft, so there was a lot of extra effort involved in walking.
