Skipping Across the Islands
Sunday August 25, 2013
Don't have to get up early today which is always a joy on vacation.
Heading down for breakfast in the lower part of the guesthouse and it
is not near as busy today. Guess other people have gotten up and
left – maybe to get down from the …

for another trip, another time.
The ferries and helicopters and the sub-sea tunnels. All connecting
the people and the islands in some fashion. We mostly did tunnels
and bridges between islands with only one ferry trip. I am sorry

roads in the hills are single track roads but there are plenty of
turn outs. It is raining but not hard. Figured that today looks a

also on and off the pavement a few times as well to let cars pass
