  • We are staying right here so we went to the bay several time, we ate dinner, one night we kayaked. We learned it was originally a marsh and dredged for construction that didn't happen.

  • Such a beautiful place with beautiful people and nature all around you. very lucky for someone who is raised on this island. The locals are very friendly and generous to all who they come across. Tip number one: a car honk can mean a lot of things. But usually it's just a nice hello! 😍
