Local historian Alice van Ommeren sends this 1970s postcard of Lost Isle Bar and Resort.
Writes van Ommeren, “The back says ‘Lost Isle Club…The Yachtman’s Rendezvous.’ Just off of main Stockton Channel near Light 24. Beautiful protected harbor with electric plugins at all moorings, barbecue pits and picnic tables, mixed drinks, individual cooked meals, soft drinks, and sandwiches (Al and Ed Conner, Owner).”
The column on the red tape strangling Lost Isle spurred a key county official to set up a meeting with the resort’s owner and architect to find a way to streamline county bureaucracies and better coordinate them with with state and federal agencies. He doesn’t want publicity, yet, anyway. Obviously I commend his efforts. And wish him Godspeed
