“Well …” Ned replied slowly, “Dave has a couple of boats and so do I. I guess we could come up with something.” And he added that the island is only about a 10-minute boat ride from several marinas and yacht clubs. Getting out there isn’t going to be a problem.

Last summer Ned and Dave rented out the island for the first time, and it was rented again this summer, too. But now it’s the fall of 2009. What’s next? Well, who knows? Anyone ready to write a new chapter in the Brockway Island story?

    spent the summer there. My dear friend was Ernie and
    betty’s neice. What a special vacation it was and how wondrous they were! Much coleslaw and little electricity except a small windmill Ernie had erected to power a tiny refrigerator. The house was built as an “attic and floodable cellar” to slow down tax potential. And then there were the planes he built.
    What a guy and when he asked her on their marriage what she wanted, she replied “an island”
