Hi Linda, > oh, my goodness, we had fun and adventure on Patos. There were five of us, > we were the only visitors to the island, and it was magical. We went to the > lighthouse after dinner, and enjoyed a fantastic sunset. This morning we set > out on the trail around through the woods, and when we got to the beach on > the other side, decided to go south rather than north, as it was the lowest > tide of the year and we thought we could maybe walk around. > Wrong! We ended up doing a LOT of bushwhacking, finally making it back to > the beaches towards the harbor, and I must say, there are a lot of tired > cookies relaxing in a hot bath tonight. It was a great adventure, and I feel > I got much more educated about the island! I will definitely recommend that > people do not attempt to go to the south end unless they are in a boat. > > We had planned to go to the lighthouse again today, but by the time we got > back to camp and had some lunch, it was time to go. > >  I could see that there is a lot of work to be done on the trail, some > energetic folks with clippers is in order. > > > >
