I decided to go ashore at the Bitter End Yacht Club to stretch my legs and found a path leading to neighboring resort, Biras Creek, which had unfortunately just shut down due to a dispute between the landowner and leaseholder. The grounds still had some maintenance staff around, but the structures around the beach were already succumbing to mother nature's forces. The walk took me up the hill and around the headland where the Bitter End is located and the view from the top of the hill gave me a whole different perspective on the North Sound.
