Wishtoyo to me was a very powerful place to surround yourself with positive energy. We were greeted with powerful songs and powerful energy. We then introduced ourselves to to Mati and his tribe. Over the days I felt like I bonded with more people and I felt like family to the Chumash. We had crazy adventures of going snorkeling and kayaking with people on the Channel Islands. Our boat ride back was also an adventure because we saw dolphins and whales. I was kind of upset because we were leaving soon and I did not want it to end. All the nights we laughed around the fire, looked at the stars, cried, sang, danced was like a dream. We all woke up and soaked in as much as we could as we all said our goodbyes sadly.
