A bit of history: Picture is Sandy Roberts (holding the netted fish) and friend fishing off Race Lagoon. The fish is a large king just caught by Sandy. The boat is a 14 foot plank hulled Storm King outboard that Ron & Sandy's parents (Trevor & Harriette Roberts) rented at the Shangri-La Shores resort. They had 5 of these and another 5 slightly larger 16 foot Reinell inboards. You can barely make out the "Whido-Isle" logo on the side of the boat. Quite a catch, Sandy!
Fishing in 1953 or 1954
The community worked together to install and landscape the Shangri-La Shores sign at the head of Arbor Drive. Art Paulsen's father made the sign and Jim Magnusson gave it a beautiful roof. The landscaping crew is shown posing below. Compare this photo to the one one the "About Us" tab. How the plants have grown!
