Outdoors: A Natural Nightlife
You'll see things at night here that you won't see just about anywhere else!
Stars! Millions and millions of stars, that are normally blocked out by city lights, blaze in the night sky here. The only inturruption in the show are the occasional meteor or highflying airplane. And if you happen to be there during a period of high solar activity, the Northern Lights will keep you enthralled for hours.
Dress Code: Make sure to bring binoculars for star gazing, and warm clothing, even in mid-summer is a must. Temperatures on a typical August evening might be in the mid 50sF.
Hole-In-the-Wall Campground: Exciting, no. Romantic, yes.
If you haven't already, read my travel tip on Hole-In-the-Wall Campground. Find yourself a nice campsite overlooking the ocean, and wait til sunset when the fog should come in. Build a nice fire, open a bottle of wine, listen to the waves below and wait for the soothing sound of the last ferry to leave the island blowing the fog horn. The rest is up to you.
Dress Code: None required.
