    I was doing a Google search for the logs kept by the cottage owned by the same family. I know the Canadian government copied them. There are a lot of famous people that signed that log. It was started in the 20's. This post from here came up.

    Some might be interested if they missed it.

    The cottage in the picture was the Evinrude cottage.

    The turtle hangs out just to the West of that cottage about 300 feet when he isn't begging for food from a boat in the area.

    Did you mean the snapping turtle?

    There are 3 cottages in the area. One has been in the same family for over 100 years. They say that turtle is likely 100 years old. It has been begging from boaters for a lot of years. And beg it does. I clean fish at its favorite hangout at times. It expects it.

    Nice pictures Doug. How'd that one picture of a shark get in there?

    I have a piece of driftwood on our wall in Michigan I picked up about where I was when I took that picture. We got it on our first trip to North Channel in 1963. For some reason we stopped there and drifted for a while. Another couple was with us on our 30' Chris Craft. The two girls swam ashore to explore a deserted cabin.

    The walked in and found some pants hung over the back of a chair. They realized it wasn't deserted. If the guy had been there he would have thought it was his lucky day.

    Ah - thanks. I haven't been west of Spanish by boat.
    Mike,

    GoogleEarth it:

    46 0852.79' N

    82 2223.89' W

    When taking the "northern" route in a westerly direction from LC, you have to go thru it to get to Spanish or travel west of Spanish.

    You can say that again....I am in the market for something in the 15-17ft range to dock beside the "mothership". Would even consider the ones that speed up when going down hill

    Mike, would be good to see you if you made it up here this summer.

    I'd love to crank it up Doug but I'm currently landlocked. Hopefully the Fox River locks will be open in a short few years. The locks themselves are basically done. There is a lift station yet to be built . This is to keep invasive species out of the Fox River and Lake Winnebago pool but we all ready have them, zebras and various weeds. etc. The locks have been closed since 1987, these species were most probably brought in on small trailerable boats and their trailers. I could have my 38 transported to Lake Michigan but that is more costly than what the budget will allow at this time. I'll enjoy the area via your photos and those of others. Have a great summer!

    Mona is camera shy, but Doug could break any camera, among other things...

    Even though we were only there for a weekend cocktail party and fish fry, the memories will last forever, or at least until we go back. As great as Doug's photos are, they don't do justice to the natural pristine beauty of the North Channel...

    Its called Little Detroit. It is West of Little Current about 40 or so miles.

    The water is over 100 feet deep right up to the little cut. Because the approach from the other side is blind, boats give securty calls before entering.
    Ah - thanks. I haven't been west of Spanish by boat.

    It "might" be burning more fuel than your FICHT Doug. Like, double.

    I was so surprised at its speed, I made of point of having Doreen look at both GPS's, because I expected some doubters.
