Ice out update, May 12, 2013…. “Mother’s Day Edition”



The new barbeque deck by cabins 1 and 2………the barbeque is “coming”…………


The new beach deck…with stairs into the water.  Possibly a new suntan spot for Marge?


Bottom half of Vermilion Bay is still ice covered…….a south wind predicted for tomorrow…….


Gull Rock………ice anyone?


The deck on cabin 5 has been expanded………a great view!


Some of the new renovations to the interior of cabin 5.  Marsha will be pleased!

  1. Gord, everything looks great! Bryce has been an excellent addition to the staff. Greg and I are looking forward to the improvements made to cabin 5. How is the water level and does my lovely wife have a chance with her guess of ice out for today?

      1. You told me as long as we kept bringing up Pabst Blue Ribbon, we were in the clear, and fiber “didn’t matter”?


    1. That was the correct date for 1975. Are you finally claiming your prize? I believe the owner from that century is dead. You may have trouble tracking him down……but good guess anyhow!

  2. Professor,

    I think Gord was simply looking at the tea leaves and projecting that Shawn’s guess of May 15 would be correct. Then again, the contest is probably just rigged.

  3. Well I must say Gord you really have things looking good from the pics.
    We probably won’t recognize the place next year.
    So who is in the running for ice out date?
    By the way love the photos much appreciated…
