Guemes Island

I spent Saturday exploring Guemes by bicycle - and foot. For a small island, it has a wonderful diversity of shoreline and some great beaches. The southeast end is rocky (and harder to access), but the rest of the island is marked by spectacular bluffs and long stretches of accretional beaches. As matter of fact, it is impressive how much of the shoreline is barrier beach - some sort of testament to the rolling topography of the island and the abundance of beach forming sand and gravel (from those spectacular bluffs).
