    Wow! the last time I was there was 47 years ago when I was 18? 19? and pregnant with my first son. A bunch of us were there going snag fishing cause the fish were running and it was a great place to catch the breezes in the summertime. I have photos of when we were there. It was nothing like it is today, back then it was quiet, and there was not much there, you just took a blanket, fishing line, and a bucket. You mostly sat on the blanket and enjoyed the breezes. Heaven on earth.
