know before you go!

1. you can only arrive here by boat. so plan ahead

2. bad back or weak ankles? maybe not ideal. there are several areas where you are walking on beach stones.

3. watch the weather! trails/paths flood easily. and if winds are too high, some boats won't take you.

4. the fort is nice but no reenactments like at the citadel.

5. overall it was a nice "walk in the woods and harbor view.
