I hate to be the one to break it to you, but Grog Island is Grog shoal now.
Jos...Grog Island was really wonderful...especially for kids. Too bad but mother nature is relentless.
Yeah, I know there really isn't anything left of it. I still like the area though. Maybe it is just sentimental. As a kid, my parents would send my brother and I ashore in the dinghy with a tent, and we'd camp out on the island while they had the boat to themselves. At the time, it didn't occur to me that they were getting something out of the deal.
Nothing left of the island to camp out on now.
But even just a few years ago, 20 years after those camping days, there were some trees left so you could still call it an "island". We were anchored, rafted with a friend's boat. In the morning, with our sterns to the island (and the sun coming up behind it), I sat with my feet hanging over the transom, completely relaxed, and thought, this is the way life should be
. A strong memory. So yeah, it's sentimental.
