After reading it, if you are familiar with the islands and would like to get a navigable aerial view to look at, go to the new Google Earth site and download and install the free Google Earth Viewer. Then navigate to zip code 43446, which is Middle Bass Island. You can then zoom, rotate and tilt the view of the islands to get a good view of the bay between Middle Bass and Sugar Island. The aerial image will even show the shoal that used to connect the islands.


Thinking about the area between Sugar Island and Middle Bass Island as a large deep water bay used quite a bit for 18th century logging, as well as a stopping place for sailing ships crossing the lake, provides a fascinating perspective.
