Special Picture # 151 – The Island


I am going to be on The Island until July 13th so I thought I’d give you an idea of what it has been like over the 70 years we have owned it. My guess is this is the first picture taken on the Island once we had purchased it in 1945. It makes sense to me that Grandpa and the boys would have made a trip up there to think about and plan what they might do with it and on it.

L to R – Lad, Dick, Ced and Grandpa. My guess is that Dan is taking the picture. Dan’s daughter just reminded me that in 1945 Dan was still in France so Dave must have taken the picture. Thanks, Arla.

This is the view of the Island from the beach where we park our cars. The anticipation is on the rise.

    Have a great time. It is really nice to have a place to go to disconnect from life stresses. My aunt has the beach house. I think we have our project house…but an island is way too cool. :D

      Gallivanta – Thank you. I sure plan on it, with the culminating weekend of a Guion Family Reunion – held every five years. I’ve been working madly to get everything arranged….
