The long walk out to the lighthouse has been on my list for decades - even before I started working on beaches professionally and long before I started collecting beaches as a hobby. I've been to down the base of the spit numerous times, with and without family, and once I even walked out half a mile or so at high tide to watch storm waves spill over the top.
Saturday, I headed over to the Peninsula early, stopped at Port Williams to explore another beach and to wait for the tide to fall a little farther. I began hiking around 11:30, spent an hour or so out at the lighthouse, and got back to the car around 4:30. I walked four of the five miles back barefoot.
