MARE ISLAND WAS MY FAVOURITE.

WE ARRIVED TO A DISPLAY OF LOCAL MUSIC AND DANCING.

THE STUNNING BEACH HERE WAS A 20MIN BUS DRIVE.
SOME OF THE BUSES REMINDED ME OF OLD BUSES WE USED TO
GO TO SCHOOL IN A LONG TIME AGO.

YOU WOULDN'T THINK THAT 1 BEACH WOULD HOLD ALL OF US
FROM A BIG CRUISE SHIP, BUT I WAS ABLE TO FIND A COSY SPOT
UP THE END NEAR THE ROCKS.

HERE IN MARE, THE LOCALS WERE SO FRIENDLY AND WELCOMED
US. YOU COULD BUY FOOD COOKED FRESH IN LITTLE STALLS
ALONG THE BEACH FRONT.

BACK AT THE TENDER SPOT, THERE WERE MARKETS AND A LITTLE
CAFE WHERE WE ALL MET AND HAD A NO.1 WHILST WAITING FOR
OUR BOAT. THE BEERS ON MARE ARE MUCH CHEAPER THAN ON
THE ISLE OF PINES.

THEN WATCHED SOME ROCK JUMPING.
