What is the history of Christmas Cove in Maine?

Ever since Christmas 1614, when Captain John Smith dropped anchor in this picturesque spot, Christmas Cove has been a favorite of sailors. The protection is excellent, and it is not far off the east-west path. Christmas Cove is a busy little place, always full of movement, but it retains its wonderful, low-key atmosphere. Seals, mallards, and ospreys share the cove, along with a multitude of cruisers.
