The sushi was awesome.

We meet a great local family that was camping there on the first weekend. They went home Sunday. Two of the sons went out and set traps. John and Richard came back on there quad with this cooler full of fresh crab and prawns, and stayed for most of the week.

Reuben was safe.... they were already cleaned.
