Ghost stories about Baptiste lake!

'Dead Horse Point' is another confusing location. An old lumbermen who used to raft logs down the lake once told me that they called the rock and pine point where the older Kerr cottage now is, 'Dead Horse Point' in honour of a raft horse which died there. Now, the sandy point nearer the marina seems to have inherited the name.
RE: location of "Dead Horse Point". Henry Chamberlain, a farmer from McGary Flats told us in the fifties that the horses were drowned off of Pine Point (Kerr's yellow cottage) I found horse's teeth while swimming at the beach in the cottage next door (Waltier) in the sixties.

Did you know that Baptiste has an island called a point (Rabbit Point) and a nearby point called an island (Wyke Island.) Makes our lake more interesting.
