They were hosting an adults-only week-long gathering. There were eight people including the owners: us, my wife’s three sisters, and their husbands. The cottage is a block off the beach. Notice all the little boats?

At the very tip the waves surge in from the ocean on the left, while the sound remains calm on the right.

We made two trips to the point. It was my favorite place on the island. But we had several other outings that week.
