May 15, 2014: The Bridge is OUT

My sources at the Inn tell me that the pedestrian bridge to Coney Island came out today. That should mean that you can reach Devil’s Gap from Laurenson’s Creek.

The lake looks so much better when the sun is shining. Here are some shots from this morning.

Don’t forget to click on the pictures to see more detail.

But it’s not over, not by a long shot. This is Pine Portage Bay. The ice road is breaking up in the foreground, but further out on Bigstone Bay, the ice looks much stronger. I expect it to darken soon, but with the long weekend starting tomorrow…

  1. The ice left Clearwater Bay Tuesday evening. The boat is in and we spent last night at the island. Heaven!!

  2. These pics are a thrill to get. Thanks so much. Looks like our island, Middle Island, is still pretty much locked in ice. Not too worried about that because I can’t get there until mid-June. I am sure Dave Johnson is watching these pics closely because he wants to be there right now. Looks like ice is gong out a little late this year. Stop in a see us sometime. We are just 1/4 mile south of Dave’s place on south end of Middle. -Riley Date: Thu, 15 May 2014 17:45:38 +0000 To: brissman@live.com
