Thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience, from the boat trip over, meeting Patsy Dan and our walk to the lighthouse. Would have loved a little more time. Maybe next year!

One of the most beautiful places on earth… you feel like you have gone back to a more pure and honest time…the place has a natural ruggedness that is so beautiful and peaceful.
