“Liquid Heaven” (13) – Special Pictures and Memories – Fishing Rock – 1945 – 2022

Our Family Island Retreat was purchased in 1945 from Rusty Heurlin’s family because they no longer used it and Grandpa’s family was growing. Grandpa and his children thoroughly enjoyed any time they spent there.

From now until the end of the summer, and perhaps into the fall, I will be posting pictures of places on the Island and sharing stories and memories of these unique places. I hope you can enjoy a few peaceful moments while I share these memories with you.

Spring Island - 1999 (13) - Fishing Rock, Toothpaste Landing and Dock

Fishing Rock (located to the left of Toothpaste Landing – # 7 above)

Depending on the water level, it is only 3 to 5 feet deep around Fishing Rock. It was a perfect place to catch “Sunnies” also known as Sun Fish. My girls would have competitions to see who could catch the most, sometimes on a day or even for our entire stay. The preferred bait was a kernel of corn.

Spring Island - low water at Fishing Rock

This is Fishing Rock at an extremely low water level. My guess would be the water is only about 1 to 2 feet deep.

Spring Island - Blueberries

These are the blueberries at Fishing Rock. The side of the Island got the morning sun and the blueberries flourished along the path to Fishing Rock.

Tomorrow, more Special Pictures and Memories of our Island Family Retreat know to some as “Liquid Heaven”.
