Update:

Just got back from a 2.5 week meandering jaunt out to Campania Island, and it was an even more amazing place than expected.

The beaches were great, the traffic was very light, and the biggest surprise was a weird bonsai tree / granite bluffs ecosystem a couple hundered feet in elevation above the water.

Here's a quick sampling of photo's, including our stern tie with an extra anchor on the stern quarter that got dinghied out when the weather decided to kick up from an entirely new direction

Hi Jim,

Maybe next time, eh?

We saw five boats in four days...was it that busy when you were there? And what was up with the horseflies?!!? I expected gazillions of them!!
