I usually avoid the shores of Mission Point Lighthouse this time of year because it’s always pretty crowded.
My favorite time to hang out there is in the dead of winter when it’s 10 below and the north wind screaming off West Bay freezes your face off. Usually have the beach to myself, and there’s nothing like that biting air to make a person feel alive.

However, I did hike through there in a loop from the Murray Road Trailhead the other day, and while there was a crowd at the beach, the magical light from the sunset over West Bay made it all worthwhile.
The photo above is from that day. Because we can all use a little something to soothe our soul right about now, right?
And just to remind myself that winter is coming and that Ned Stark has nothing on me, here’s a photo from my favorite time of year at the lighthouse. No bugs, no heat, no humidity, just cold, biting, face-numbing air. Ahhh….. is it winter yet?
