Walking to Stiles Cove from the halfway trailhead can hardly be considered a hike, that’s why I call it ‘a little hike’. This short trail to Half Moon Brook is more like a fancy walk, with several beautiful ocean viewpoints at the end. The sun was shining bright and there was no wind to speak of, so today was almost T-shirt weather for me, almost. Here’s a few pictures of this typical November day:

This last scene left me staring at the ocean for a while, trying to find something in the water: last summer, I saw so many whales in this spot, that even now in fall it seems strange they’re gone.
