Summer of 2001

These photos I took in early August, during a visit to the former site of the camp. I didn't know what to expect as I set out that day, leaving my wife and daughter at nearby Hermit Island for an hour. I drove right past the property, in fact, without realizing where I was until I came to the water's edge and recognized the inlet.

As you can see from the photos, I arrived at low tide. It didn't take long to spot the boathouse, a dock where I remembered one, and the familiar collection of "Small Pointers" at anchor. It was a great surprise to find the Blue Nose at her mooring, looking no worse for wear after so many years. The Pintail was probably there too, but I couldn't tell because the boats were too far away for me to read the names.

I had been warned by a local shopkeeper that the camp building was no more. What I found, however, was a pleasant surprise, as parts of the old structure, as well as its scale and color, had been preserved in the new one. Click on the photos for a larger view.   -Chuck A.
