I was especially glad to see the fresh abalone and barnacle scattered all over the island. However, because there is no supermarket, snacks are so prized, and because there are no lodging facilities, we are asking island residents for their consent to stay with them. There are no restaurants, so the cast and crew are eating all three meals in a food truck”.
