I was here last year and saw my first black bear in the wild. However the bear is no longer here. Today I took a walk over to the other side of the island where there is the YMCA John Island camp and the camp Director Roxy Peterson kindly gave me a tour.
The camp can cater up to 200 children at anyone time. Anyway according to Roxy, they captured the bear, put him in a cage and took him away so there are no more bears on the island.
So I have got good cell coverage here and I want to catch up on some of the photos from past bays. Here is one of Long Point Cove which really shows up the type of granite outcroppings here.
And here is one that shows how good the beavers are here at chopping down trees.
There used to be a sawmill here in Moiles Harbor before the YMCA and they have a museum showcasing many of the old tools.
The is a lake at the top of the island here called Lost Lake, that I plan on climbing to first thing in the morning.
