got back from island trip at 1:15am so im still a little tired but I know some of you are wanting and waiting to see some pics so ill start with mine.
First off id like to say Keven you rule dude[36][36] the quads and the boat made this camping trip one of my best ever trips, so much fun!! Thank you.

We arrived at the beach just before dark it was a little wet out so we hurried to get are camp set up. First day was mostly setting up camp and getting the boat in the water making things right. So we got a little sun in on sunday but when monday came it was hell breaking loose!! im not kidding the wind was so fast and strong (gust up to 150km) it destroyed camp that we all worked so hard to build. tent poles shattered, tents flattened like pancakes.

We toughed it out for what seemed like forever, everyone was hanging on the hunting tent/kitchen including the kids . We hung on to them tent poles in the hunting tent like it was our lives at stake. As we hung on we watched honky run around with his head cut off trying to tie down the tent with ropes and zap straps. We tied ropes to 200# logs and used them as anchors but even that seemed like not enough. the wind was so strong it actually moved the 200# logs around and zap straps where breaking off like dried pasta, but we never gave up!!

We hung in there in till the high tide and the storm surge combined made for a very tough decision, and that was that we had to run for higher ground. So we did our best to secure the hunting tent and had to pack up all are tents and crap and head for the hills in this bad ass tropical storm. After the 15hr wind storm we went back to the beach and to are delight we still had the hunting tent and most of every thing els. so time to move back to camp. Although I did stay up on high ground for another couple of days, just in case.

Now that the storm had past the fun started and the real beauty of this place began to shine and from here i will let the pics do the talking.
