    Look forward to the wecbam. As a young boy, I spent a number of summers with my grandparents, Howard and Luella Gletty, at Birch Bay. Ray and Violet Varland also spent many summers there with their son Ronny. I remember going up to Bill and Pegs’ house to get an ice cream bar. The fishing, well it goes without saying, was fantastic. I also took my very first airplane ride/floatplane ride from the dock.We loved to swim in the cool/cold clear water, and the last year I was there, grandpa brought up a small ski boat for us kids. I hope to visit some day, and stay in the cabin that is closest to the point. Thanks.
