My wife and I have enjoyed this island immensely these last twenty years. We hope these notes may give you a sense of this special place--and that you may fall under its spell too.

You don't see the kitchen window frosted that often. We got to 3 degrees early this morning. We went from open water to a very poor quality of ice--as it formed after midnight while the wind was blowing hard. More like frozen slush. Woe be it to the ice fisherman who doesn't move with caution today. The ice is still poor as we move toward twilight. The island itself is a happy place, with all the windows flooded with sunlight. Nothing like snow on ice to brighten up a place with the reflected light of a sparkling winter's day.
