We arrived after a long day of walking and beach-combing, at Sea Camp Ranger Station with a half-hour to spare before the last ferry of the day. Gary rested on the porch at Sea Camp to catch the ferry there, while I hiked back to Dungeness to catch the ferry at its last stop. I had visions of twisting my ankle on the trail and missing that last ferry pickup. I should mention...if you miss the last ferry, you spend the night on the island - and I left the backpack with Gary! Would've been a long cold night without even a pillow.

|Camp site at Sea Camp has table, firepit, and what I believe is a racoon/squirrel box?|
