Meet at 10:30am at the parking lot at the end of Seven Sisters Rd (Wolfe Property State Park) so we can take advantage of the relatively low tide (2' at noon). Optional carpool meetup at 10:00am at Church of the Nazarene (Viking Way, Poulsbo) .

Leisurely hike with hopefully lots of wildlife viewing (there's resident bald eagles, and porpoises are frequently seen from Whiskey Spit).

Please prepare for potentially knee-deep crossing of the small channel at Bywater Bay (I'd recommend shorts and river sandals but barefoot with pants rolled up is workable).

We'll have lunch on the beach somewhere en route.
