Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2011

December 29, 2011

The mild winter has given us many quiet mornings warmed by the sun, and, with the shortened afternoons, the days have passed as a lullaby.  Of course there have been exceptions, most notably the past few days of crashing waves and flying spray more typical of life on the point during winter. But even so, the change was refreshing and cleared the last leaves of fall from the crevices of the great lawn. Now the grass can absorb more sun and some of the spring bulbs have already sent up testing green.

Tracy and I have also had a nice respite. After a trip to New Orleans we returned to Christmas with family. We are still enjoying the great collection of Dicken’s Village houses and figurines we acquired from Peggy, a friend of Henry and Scott’s of Two If By Sea Restaurant. Collected over 20 years, Peggy and her husband were delighted to keep their cherished keepsakes together and came to visit them at their new home here at the Inn. We also have a live tree to plant after New Years and had a wonderful Open House on Christmas Day. Now we are looking forward to planning for the weddings and many new guests in 2012.

Please visit us on Facebook for pictures of the house decked out for Christmas, and above all else, we wish you and yours a prosperous and blessed New Year!

Bob and Tracy
