Late Summer Warm Weather!
Sep 9, 2012
The days have been getting warmer and warmer and most days have been so calm on the water – especially in the morning time! We have had so many guests enjoying the kayak trips both in the Bay and out to the Lighthouse – perfect time of year!
It’s hard to wrap my mind around the fact that it is September and that the summer season has ended. Both Tom and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many new guests this summer. While our lives only intersect for a brief moment in time, we personally feel such a connection with our guests. Most are wanting to find a place to relax, enjoy good food, good company and feast their eyes on the beauty of nature. We can so empathize with that! Some guests have asked us if we vacation right here ourselves? While the answer is occasionally we will take a night or two and stay at the cottages – reality is, as owners, the minute we do we are looking around at all the potential projects to complete – and thus, the relaxing just doesn’t quite get there like if we were to go somewhere else…. sigh….
I tell you though, one of our favorite things is to watch all of you transform from the hectic rush-of-life look on your faces when you arrive to the smiling, laid-back persona when you leave! So gratifying to be a part of that!
Thinking of making a visit to the Olympic Peninsula?
September and October are two of the best months to visit the area!
Fall colors at Hurricane Ridge, no crowds on the Dungeness Spit
and the salmon are beginning to run the rivers!
Our sons, Justin and Matthew are already filling our freezer for the year!
Do you like blackberries? We do – and the bushes are all plump for picking right now! mmm .. blackberry pie a-la-mode!
