Before heading up though, we tired out and "calmed down" The Dog at the beach so she wouldn't pull as much.
Then, we headed up.
The "clatter" of cicadas was impressive! The trees were abundant in their old shells.
Nearer the top, the view became open.
A couple of family photos, a compulsory nut bar - the kids now expect them whenever we head on longer walks - and shortly, it was time to head down again.
About two hours roundtrip. The Kid did it under his own breath, The Girlie probably walked 85% on her own.
A good day to be had by all.
