Just wanted to drop a line and say hello. I’ve always been intrigued by Bois Blanc and a few years ago, after a spontaneous visit, My bride and I bought a few lots. We’re looking forward to eventually setting up a cabin. Over the years I often bring up the island in conversation, and it surprises me how many have heard of it but don't know where it is. I often resort to the ever present Michigan map (Right Hand) and some hand puppets to show the location.
I'm sorry but I'm feeling a little selfish lately….I have realized what attracts me to this place is the fact that it is one of Michigan’s best kept secrets, and I,... well you understand. Confused

Wanting to be helpful I then instruct them in the proper pronunciation of the island Bois Blanc ...just like its spelled....BobLo! Wink

We tend to tell people the wrong directions to our paradise. That way most won't bother to come, and it stays small longer. I know it is a losing battle, but it makes me feel better! Twisted Evil
