On an island in Logan Martin Lake lies a treasure chest of loot...from Toomey's Mardi Gras!
The whole place is a bit Robinson Crusoe-ish: a tiny island
on Logan Martin Lake with a sandy beach, a roped-off swimming area and a
treasure chest full of loot.
“But they want to know what’s in the treasure chest.” The 50-by-75-foot island is located on Logan Martin Lake near Pell City. If you want to get to the island, you need your own boat and maybe even its exact GPS coordinates: 33°30’07.9”N 86°15’38.9”W. The size of the island, Regan said, means there’s not much room for mystery when it comes to treasure hunting.
“I will tell people who come out there to stay together in your pairs so nobody gets lost, make sure you have your island mate — but the treasure chest is in plain view on one end of the island and the kids know their know their way in their sleep,” Regan said.
The chest is painted to look like an old fashioned treasure chest with “Pirate Island” painted on the lid. Regan said he often fills it with Mardi Gras beads from Toomey’s Mardi Gras, a Mardi Gras supply store in Mobile, but that visitors to the island often leave other items for kids as well....
