During the Patriot Wars of 1838 a man named Bill Johnston (often referred to as a pirate) spent time hiding in a little cave called Devils Oven. Many stories exist regarding how big the cave really is. The water is really low right now so I decided to do a little investigating and take along the video camera.

Now there are a lot of stories about all of this. Some say he was in this cave for a whole year, some say just 3 days. The link below contains the oldest bit of information I could find and I imagine it is probably one of the more accurate versions of the story. Go to the link below and read what it has to say.

I was also warned about large black water snakes in the cave, but that is not enough to scare off old Johnny.

In case you don't know this little story has a lot to do with Pirate Days which we have in the Bay every August..
