    Very nice! Reminds me of a trip I did some years back, just shortly before discovering hammocks.
    I took a group to Bear Island, part of Hammocks Beach State Park, NC, but there would have been few if any places to hang a hammock on the part of the island we were on.
    I'm guessing you guys had plenty of trees for hammocks there.
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    Ahh.... Some beautiful coastline there and with some good friends + hammocks - it's a win win situation.

    Thanks for taking us along.

    Video: North Manitou Island (slideshow)

    Hi there all ... I just wanted to post this short video of some of the pictures that I took on North Manitou Island. It's about 4 minutes long. I took about 180+ pictures so I will post some of them separately since they all could not fit in this video. Had a great time and met some great people! ... Plus .. We had great weather!!!!!!!!!!!!



    I look forward to the next time I can be out in the woods!
