It may be hard to narrow it down to just one thing, so what are your favorite things about the island?

What I like about the island is the nature and the peace and quiet.
Code:

In the winter the snow is so white and in the summer i love to hear the water from the lake and the foghorn when it goes off.

SOME but not all of the things I like about the Island ...


The clean air

The waves washing up on The beach

The pine smell

And all of my friends that have to leave coming back in the summer time !!

It's been my home for almost 49 years. What else can I say. I like everything, even the dust, whatever, it's part of the Island.

It is so green
It is so close to nature
It is so buggy sometimes
It is so filled with beautiful views of the lake
It is so filled with personal adventures
It is so filled with history
It is so great because it is so different.

Very Happy Lots of things but there is one I learned while there, really do not have to worry about washing your hair everyday. Don't need mousse, hair spray either. All we need is that good old dust and your hair will stay however you want it.

Mike,
It's so great that you live there
And it's so great to come and visit
And as Al's Frig says
"All I get for the Holidays are relatives!"

What do I love most about the Island?

The quiet beauty,
and peaceful silence.
The haunting foghorn,
and crashing waves.
The million trees,
and winding trails.
The long ferry ride,
and that first glance.
The abundant wildlife,
and hardy souls.
The secluded campgrounds,
and hidden cottages.
The carrying on of family tradition,
if only once a year.

thumbs_up!

We love everything about the island - nature, solitude, and the people.

It's so close to civilization in miles, but so remote in reality. BBI is truly a gift from heaven.

Time stops,I can take off my watch.The only time that matters is when the sun comes up,when dark falls and when the ferry docks.
