Just past the South Head Light we come upon Iron Ore Bay, one of the most beautiful bays ever seen.  This is the southern most part of the island and on clear days you can see the Fox Islands and the Manitou's from here.   Summer isn't complete without at least one picnic down here and letting the kids swim in the lake and splash in Iron Ore Creek.

As you can see in the above photos, the creek here, like at the Jordan River, changes constantly.  This is a perfect place to do some beachcombing.

There are now a few summer homes here, but the center part of the bay is still public and there is a restroom here along with a couple picnic tables and volleyball net.
