In the 1960s I had  a penfriend at Hog Island whom  I visited.  Late one afternoon the ferry dropped me off at the Hogg Island Stelling and no one else was around.  I could have used my cell phone to make contact, but me feget it at home. It was getting dark when I heard the sound of an outboard motor and I was taken to  the other side of the island.  Their house was in the middle of the jungle  and the outhouse was a distance away,  with many snakes on the path.

This was the beginning of writing penfriends, that grew into dozens of people in the Caribbean and other countries. I visited many after I came to Canada and worked at sea.

Since Hog Island is so isolated, I wonder how safe and populated the island must be now. Its remoteness could be ideal for illegal activities.   

You had a cell phone in 1960?
