              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1965

              About the owner: I was raised in Seattle and have spent my summers coming to Birch Bay since I was a child. There is something Magical about the Bay, the smell of the air, the breeze in your face, it makes you want to say I am here! You get a sense of being carefree, laughing and smiling a lot!The picture is the Ring of fire for Hope and Peace on the Bay, New Year's Eve.

              Why the Owner Chose Birch Bay:
              Birch Bay is famous for its warm shallow waters and endless tides that go out forever. I enjoy eatting hot crab just cooked on the beach while listening to the waves with a glass of wine, the sense of peace surrounds you and its a aha moment in time!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              I love to walk the beach and gather shells and sea glass or walk up to the State Park and go on nature walks listening to the Bald Eagles and birds. Birch Bay has great out door restaurants, coffee shops, we also have award winning golf courses within minutes of the beach house.
