Christmas Cove (south view)
My grandparents (Harold & Marie Bahlke) bought land at Christmas Cove in 1968/69 and my grandfather built the family cedar cottage there. I have been going up my whole life and it is extremely precious to me (and the rest of my family). The peninsula will always be cherished and a part of our lives. I’ve included three pictures, but of course have hundreds more! Thanks for all the work you folks do to protect the peninsula!
