Started the trip at Cape Alava first. The boardwalk was in very good shape (thank you NPS), only one small mud pit on the path. Tskawahyah Island is dramatic and accessible. North of the island the breakers roll into a lovely sandy bay. Sea anemones abound on the rocks.
Sand Point was where sea lions could be heard barking that day. They are far from the beach, so bring binoculars to see them. There is a sort of rock pier where starfish can reliably be seen. And there is sandy beach where you can wade in the Pacific.
The hike between the two beaches is difficult, because of all the trees that have blown down across the beach. This forces you to walk out into the intertidal zone to get around the trees. It can only be done at low tide, and even then it's not a sandy or pebbly footing, but sharp rock or rounded boulders that are slick and treacherous. I wore sturdy hiking boots but wished for poles also, as I slipped. It took me 2+ hours to go 3 miles. Not a pleasant walk along the beach at all. Several people made the trek with backpacks on, but they found it tiresome and slow.
