Saturday, July 2nd
Mystic Beach

Unlike the previous morning when it was overcast, the sun was out early today. We took advantage by going on a short hike to Mystic Beach.

After we returned to Point No Point, I decided to explore the trails inside the resort. I had been a bit spooked by the circular lawn near the beach house, where paths fanned out in 5 different directions. It reminded me of being inside the computer game Myst. Well, it turns out that two of those paths lead to bathrooms. But I took a picture anyway.

Mystical Point No Point

I didn't find anything too exciting. It was quite nice exploring the trails in solitude. That solitude made me a bit nervous when I reached the bridge to Point No Point. The point itself is basically a big rock, about 30 feet from the mainland. The bridge crosses about 30 or 40 feet above the waters below. The bridge is perfectly safe, but did I mention I'm scared of heights? In any case, the view from the point isn't that great. Most of the view is just water. A better view can be had from near a red bench at the northern end of the trail system. From there, you can see the entire crescent of beaches leading up to the point.
