Hi, I'm new, too. I have never been to the Island but I have always wanted to go there. I have relatives in the Mackinaw City area and every time I would come up to visit them I would stare off at the big mysterious island and wonder what was on there and why nobody ever seemed to go there like they did to Mackinac. My uncle said the island was called Boblo and that there were lots of rattlesnakes there (I am not afraid of rattlesnakes so if that is true that is ok with me). But he really didn't know a whole lot about it. All the local history books talk about is Mackinac, Mackinac, Mackinac. In fact, believe it or not, when I mention Bois Blanc to people downstate they look at me like I am crazy. "What other island? There's no other island!" I tell them it is at least as big as Beaver Island, how could they miss it? Anyway I am kind of glad because I'd hate to see Bois Blanc ruined like Mackinac. So now that I have found your website, I can get to know my "mysterious island" better and maybe someday visit!
