Tom Sawyer's Island Part 1
It's a bit hard to see but it says the last raft leaves for the island at 4:30 p.m.
Here comes the old Mark Twain...
Hey buddy, you don't need to wait for the raft, ya know.
I looked down and saw this...
Aw, look at the two of them, side by side!
A castmember was feeding the ducks.
The Mansion looked rather lonely, I thought.
I liked that you could see Splash Mountain through the rigging of the Columbia.
OK, I'm on the island and have decided to go....to me left!
(I'm talking like a pirate already!)
A glimpse of someone working on Splash Mountain...
As I approach Fort Wilderness, I can't help but wonder... Didn't those towers have roofs at one time???
I'll have to search through my old photos because I'm sure they used to have roofs on them.
The Hungry Bear is closed for renovation...
I continue walking to the back of the island...
What's this?? Canoe storage while work is being done across the river.
Well I'll be darned! There really IS a cemetery on the island!!! I guess I never walked all the way back here before!
Let's see who is "buried" here...
I peeked through some very small cracks in this fence - too small for my lens - and saw a very rough workshop.
One quick look back at the cemetery...
...and I reach the end of the island.
I can hardly wait to go exploring in the caves! But first, we continue walking up the other side of the island. Tomorrow!
