Kelleys Island Benefit Swim

The 20th annual Kelleys Island Benefit Swim was another fantastic Swim and Golf Cart Poker Run. Jeni Hammond and Cindra Mielke swam from North Point (Long Point for you Islanders) around the north, west and south side arriving at Portside Marina in about 8 miles in 4 1/2 hours. Right after we started on the north side, an eagle flew down close to us and dipped its wing at us. A sign of good luck as far as we were concerned.

“102 Room Hotel Opens on Kelleys Island”--That would have been the headlines in the Sandusky Register in May 1874. Just four years later, this magnificent building burned to ashes. This is one of the lesser known, but intriguing stories that appear in the newest book in the historical series about Kelleys Island.
