leaving chiloe island

The three mosceteers have spent 2 days on th Chiloe island and are now getting ready to cross back thru the small islands in the inner sea, to the mainland to keep paddling south. they had some great paddling weather.

Chiloe is the second largest island in Patagonia after Tierra del fuego.
People there still live in the traditional ways building their homes on stilts right on the water front.
In the inner sea, between the island and the continent, there are a number of small islands separated by channels, some are so close together that, in the ebb tide it's possible to walk from one island to another.
Chiloe has a rich mythology - populated by strange trolls, sea monsters, and ghost ships
