Mike , Bruce and Glenn Bible, Lynn, Laurie, and Bessie Burnett

Big Island (currently named Bible Island)

My Grandfather came to the Lake in the early 20’s. The original cottage, built in the 30’s, burned down. A second cottage, built in the 40’s was not used. The other two cottages were built in the mid and late 60’s, and are currently used.

I recall crossing from Trail’s end in a 3hp wooden boat during Hurricane Hazel in 1954 with my Mom and Dad, grandfather, sister and brother ------crazy idea! I also remember fishing in the Upper Lake, when the limit of pike was virtually guaranteed.

I remember also Harold Maybee’s store; the Lake Swim, and the parties when we were teenagers.

We now have neighbours on the island – the Segers, formerly Dr. Wiley, mind you, they are about a kilometer away.
