Thanks for the memories! Part 4

Our family has been coming to Presqu’ile for 20 years. Every year for the past 19 years, we’ve taken a picture of our 4 children at the lighthouse steps. When we look at them, we remember all the years and memories we have here. We love all of the trails, deer, and other animals here. We consider this our second home. Presqu’ile is an amazing place.
