Bob says, "Hansville is a small community of mostly retired residents, on a peninsula, surrounded by salt water, at the north end of Kitsap Co., on the west side of Puget Sound. It is comprised of a lighthouse, real estate office, garage, community church, post office, & grocery -- where one can buy the world's true essentials: 'Beer -- Wine -- Bait'."
