At least I know why (besides security) you can't see the ocean on your own now. If there were no private roads, you couldn't walk the distance to the ocean over the swamp and muskeg.
The skeeters would eat you alive.
We were traveling pretty slow - at least for me - as we were aiming to get as many good shots as we could on this trip.

Thanks for adding one of yours, but I know you have lots more great ones from up there.
