On the first night, Sean convinced me to walk down the long, winding, muddy path to the beach. It was almost pitch black and we were in thick brush. I kept asking if we could turn back but he encouraged me to continue on. At one point the path was flooded and we had to walk through shallow water. A few people coming the other way told us the water is beautiful. We could hear the ocean before we got there, and when we did it was incredible. We had the entire beach to ourselves and the waves were huge and moonlit. And there were so many stars!
