Default 12 Mile Island

Jim that sand bar at the head of the island seemed to stretch forever. Years ago the sand company dredged the bar and it disappeared and has caused the head of the island to wash badly.
A note on the BELLE's trip to the park at the head of the island, the county, when they built the park, did not build a stairway from the beach to the top of the island. Therefore we had almost 1200 people tromping through the sand and as a result they carried tons of fine, dirty river sand back onto the BELLE. It was a mess and we were sweeping up sand for a week afterwards. Thank goodness, we never repeated that trip.
The park which the pleasure boaters created a few years ago is really nice. They cut the horseweeds, planted grass, built stairways to the top of the island,brought prtapot for the ladies......men have to find a tree. Our "Rumble on the River" trip a few back was a picnic to the island.
