Make a day of it on the island!
Take your car (or your bike) across the ferry and pick up your Dry Stone Walls Self-Guided Tour Booklet at the Neilson Store Museum. Visit the Sand Beach Wildlife Conservation Area and the Owl Woods. Do some shopping at Topsy Farms or at a number of artist shops along the way.
After stopping for a bite to eat at The Back Kitchen, perhaps find a few of the dozens of geocaches on the island. Don't worry, if you're too tired to head home, there are a number of great bed & breakfasts where you can rest up for the night.
