Dec. 8

Took a ride to the Campbells Point Retirement Home today. (They serve the most scrumptious cream of wheat) Holly is looking well. Up on the ridge was a good view of Bradleys bay. We have open water extending from Horsnbys to about Pratts and across to the far shore of the bay. Towards Copelands a circle of water is open out from Huismans. From the SE corner of the big island an open stretch extends into Copelands bay. And last but not least there is open water around Memorial Island and what looks like open water down close to the narrows. In your letters to Santa maybe mention that ice is good………
