This would bypass Notch Hill but would be a more scenic route. Mr. McEwan now operates the Sorrento store and post office formerly run by J. Dayliss who has build a house on the lake-shore. The present Trans Canada highway is re-joined about one quarter of a mile up from the ferry. There is a road along the south shore of the lake to Blind Bay and Eagle Bay. Here there is considerable settlement and some attractive residence have been built on the lake front. Near Blind Bay a buck with particularly fine antlers came up from the lake where he had been quenching his thirst and trotted along in front of the car. The moment we got out to snap him he tried to leap the high fence on the upper side of the road. He hit the top strand of wire with his feet, rolled over on the far side, recovered himself and was off in the bush
