You will have to read John's post below and his photos to get the full report on our trip to Jesse and Newcastle Islands. Here's a rare photo of John paddling, proof he too went through the channel Paula found.
My camera ran out of juice due to deleting all the photos before this trip and then not charging it again.
Here is Paula and behind her Bernie setting off for Jesse.
Regardless, I did capture some rathe nice photographs of Jesse Island
and the rock formations,
and more rock formations
globs of sea gooey stuff
and the warning about the guard dog which one discovers long after one is introduced to "Bruno".
I really want to return to paddle here again at a higher tide, and go through the cave.
