Our day on the Island

We are having a wonderful time! This was what we woke up to this morning!

Here we are all aboard the boat waiting to set sail. It was amazing we all had our eyes open- we got up at 6:30 this morning! (no it wasn't just Mark's idea- I wanted to get to the island early too!)

This was a demonstration they showed us of the soldiers firing their weapons in the 1860's. They used the Island to hold prisoners at that time. They didn't have to really guard them though because there was no place for them to go. I thought this picture was really neat.

This was my favorite place on the Island. It's called Arch Rock. It was awesome to see. God's creation is just incredible!

This is Arianna on the boat ride home- a little wind blown!

It was absolutely perfect weather- I couldn't have asked for any better. I'm enjoying my fudge and trust me I have burned off every calorie! I've decided I really love flat land. It was quite a climb to go to the fort! Since no cars are allowed you have to walk everywhere but it was nice. I really love this place I'm so glad we decided to come here!
Tomorrow we head for home for 1 night and then on to new adventures in a different direction!
