Why 1967? Vermilion Bay Lodge was called Little Norway Camp back then and was owned by Norm Berry. He was the second owner….the first being the original Arnie Bratland. For those of you old enough, this is not to be confused with his son Johnny Bratland who lived on the point and would drive through camp with his old Cadillac bearing the bumper sticker “My wife is in the trunk”. We think that this was a joke, as we never did hear any screaming…
Ah yes, 1967. Canada was a hundred years old and we had flexible bunnies on our coins!
It was the “Summer of Love”….soon to be followed by the “Winter of…wow, my arse is cold!”
Cars were designed to look cool, burn gas, and hold an A & W tray on the driver’s window.
