Some friends and I spent Memorial Day week out on the Sound chasing bears and gorging on shrimp. We originally planned on traveling over to the eastern side, but we did not make it that far. The water was flat and the weather was stellar.
Spring was upon us and the hillsides were free of snow and greening up. We never saw a bear on the beach in this area. We did see eight bears on this slope one evening, though. There was a lot of snow and alders to go through before the slope was accessible. It was early in the hunt, so we figured we would wait for a beach bear.
Whales were all over the place.
We ate like kings! Pork cop sandwiches were on the menu for this afternoon with some beddar cheddar dogs for an appetizer.
We finally spotted some bears on the beach. We nearly bumped the shore before this little fur ball spotted us.
