Well, we’ve reached the beach on Turtle Island and look at all the spoils of war before us. All those downed branches will make for some excellent fire wood given the fact that cutting down trees on the island is prohibited by the Manistee National Forest Service.  And, birch bark to boot which makes for an excellent fire starter!

And, now that we’ve made it to the beach what awaits us on Turtle Island?  Where will we be pitching our tent for our overnight visit to the island.  More importantly, what will we be fixing for dinner or will that depends what we catch in Big Bass Lake later today?

I wonder what this island will look like once the sun goes down?  And, what kind of view can we expect of Big Bass Lake once on the island?  Well, here goes!  It’s about time to get onto the real meat of this island but that will have to wait until next time.  Wait!  Did I hear something just up that hill?
