Just ask someone who has done just that:

From: Allen Halverson, teacher, Ballenas Secondary School
"When I left Hooksum I couldn't understand the little bit of sadness in my heart. I didn't feel like dancing at all. I figured it out though. I was leaving two friends, not a beach. I was leaving two people who had just treated my charges to one of the most incredible experiences they will have in their whole lifetimes. The welcome we received by you two, the food, the surf, the stories around the campfire, whales, a wolf, a dip in the lake, Shandy, boat rides, and laughing add up to one good time for all...It will take me a few more days to fit back in around here. I seem to be moving at a slower and a more appreciative pace in life right now, probably has something to do with Hooksum I bet. For sure."
