Today we visited Devil's Island, well actually it was Isle Royale, tourists aren't allowed on actual Devil's Island still. Isle Royal once served the headquarters for the prison on Devils island which was opened by Napoleon III and became a horrific place of exile. I guess somewhere around 80,000 prisoners were sent there but only 30,000 ever made it out alive. Although it was cool to see some of the old prison facilities, the highlight of the island for me was the wild life!!! We saw agoutis, and lots of monkeys!!!
I had a pear in my bag that I was eating and the monkeys came down out of the trees, I heald it out and was a little timid at first, and keept dropping the pear, but the I saw how gentil they were! So of course we went back to the ship and got a bunch more fruit and spent the rest of the day with the monkeys! It was awesome!!!
