Blakely Island Ownership Map
This map was published in the June 7, 1975 minutes by David Syre to illustrate the various ownership interests on Blakely Island. Those areas shown as Syre-Talmo are originally Puget Sound Pulp & Timber property subject to the Upper Island Easement. Note that this map clearly shows our access to Armitage Beach.

Paradise Lost (almost)
It's easy sometimes to take what we have today for granted. But if not for the foresight and generosity of Tom Crowley and several others, our little island would be a much much different place. Take a look at this proposal from 1975 by Washington State Parks for the development of nearly 1/2 of the island. So much for our much vaunted  private island. Thanks Tom, for pulling us out of the frying pan. We sometimes forget to say that.
