The Cove

The McCall outdoors presents endless opportunities for vigorous adventure and sport. It is a constant fascination that lures us daily. Occasionally though we need a respite from the pursuit. An opportunity to reflect on our past excursions and take stock of our efforts. For this we have discovered another form of adventure. One for our spirit as much as our physical-self.

We’ll take that as a compliment.
