An interesting sequence of events led us back to Dewees tonight. Ted had a birthday party at school today. His student teacher, Miss Mary Elizabeth Garner, stopped by tonight to drop off the cupcake containers from the party. We got talking about the Survivor party Ted is planning for Dewees this weekend. Miss Garner volunteered that her grandfather, Cal Cochrane, installed all the of sewage pipes on Dewees in the early 1990s. Mr. Cochrane lives on Goat Island now and knows Jimmy Smith.
A nice little piece of island history coming full circle. Small world.
