We’re STILL walking around Bear Island

What started as a kayak adventure turned into a half day of kayaking AND hiking when we beached our kayaks on Bear Island (yes, it’s shaped like a bear).

We had already checked out Luau Island (more on that here) so when we arrived at Bear Island, we explored nearby. Then we started walking along the rocky shoreline.


Said hi to a few folks who were fishing.


Said hi to campers.



Are we going around the entire island?


How big IS this island, anyway?


Should we turn around now? No, our kayaks are just around the corner!

Walking. Walking. Walking. Walking. Busted flip-flop.

Walking barefoot.


Seriously, just around THIS corner!

Four corners later…

…still walking!

Over 2 hours later, and a lot of spider webs to the face, we finally found our kayaks. We refueled with food and water and rested… thinking about how far we had just walked. It was quite the adventure! If you go to Bear Island and want to hang out for a bit, bring bug spray, sandals (not flip-flops), and food and water, of course.

Here are a few photos I took along the way.


Thanks for stopping by!
