A Note from the LOG
Author/sailor Susan Peterson Gateley has a new book project under way- Legends and Lore of Lake Ontario. She would very much like to hear form anyone out there with a legend or a family story of their own that concerns the lake. You can email her at susan@silverwaters.com or go to www.silverwaters.com
