I took my boat out for an hour or so on Saturday before catching the ferry. A bit nippy (in the high thirties), but the water was great. I had the chance to go to a spot I hadn't been before, and saw this really neat layering of the rock.

When viewed up close, it looks like the gray layer is a sedimentary conglomerate. The top layer is supposed to be a shale/sandstone.

Flat out guess, Jones Island.

It's pretty cool looking. I would guess up by Sucia but you were only out an hour.

Close John. It's just to the northwest of Jones at Point Disney on Waldron. I had never been up there before, and was just struck by the banding in the cliff face. I didn't land, but I guess the dock just to the north is county owned, and apparently there is some Trust land that can be hiked.

Perhaps next spring.

If the dock is public, let me know. I have not visited Waldron and would like to explore it. Glad you got out on the water.

Dennis,

I know where that is. I spent a lot of time fishing there in the past.

I think it's just public beach access there, but with very few people there I bet you could waunder around quite a bit without causing a stir.

Did you venture up the west side of Waldron on Boundry Pass? It's a beautiful area.

Hi Al,
I didn't get up to the west side of the island. I just had some time to kill before the ferry left.

Looking at the SJC parcel viewer, it appears the dock is county owned (corroborating other info), and both Pt Disney and the beach to the northwest of the dock are Trust lands. It seems like it would be a great place to land and have a hike or picnic.

We'll need to start planning another rendezvous for 2013. I should have my boat "complete" by then, whatever that means...

Dennis,

I have two terms for a completed project.
1) Complete
2) Functionally Complete

Needless to say once they hit the functionally complete stage it can be a long time to the complete stage.
