(Going through the Needle's Eye is not always possible now with high water levels. DON'T try it if the water is up)
A word about the WEATHER on the islands. The island weather is very different from the weather on the mainland. It can be raining on the mainland where the ferry is and sunny and beautiful where we are. Don't let this scare you-it's just an island fact. If you want a live but limited view of what is happening HERE -take a look at the webcam at the Jet Express on the island and you will see for yourself. If you look at the picture-it will either give you a view toward the monument or of the harbor looking toward the west. Jet Express Live Webcam
