Finally, Jones Island!

This is another island that was a favorite to visit on previous sailboat chartering trips, and we were anxious to bring Viking Star for her very own visit.  However, it is a VERY popular place, and every time we went past last summer, there was no room for us.

There has been quite a lot of work done on the island in the past few years, and it has been over 20 years since the huge windstorm took down thousands of trees and closed the island for a couple of years.

Jones is famous for it's deer, and this is the first of many we sighted.  She just looked at us curiously and continued grazing.

Al calls this 'The Tree That Wouldn't Give Up'.  It's broken branches  carried on with new life, several different times, it appears.

We were alone, but only for a moment!

Twenty years has washed away the mud ball and left a great piece of art.
