... the five of us on this big island all alone. But the beauty of the island overcame any worries I might've had. The island is actually quite steep and the community was built on the hillside. When they let us off, we climbed up to a midpoint on the island and we could see a beautiful sandy beach with seals on them.

As karma would have it, us and the polish couple that shared the cozy seats to ...
