Beaches, Picnics, and Swimming

How can it be that I’ve lived in Dallas and Kansas City and I thought it was HOT last week. It was only 88 degrees but it was hot. And humid! So after a morning of fixing breakfast, check-outs, errands, deliveries, etc. I asked James where could we go swimming. It’s not like we are surrounded …

Hiking in Camden

Has it really been a month since my last blog? What have I been doing? Oh, I remember, shoveling snow, and more snow, then more snow. And maybe more snow next week. Don’t get me wrong, it’s beautiful and the Maine DOT have it going on when it comes to keeping the roads plowed and clear. But, …

Love is in the Air

My how time flies. One minute its Trick-or-Treaters, Pilgrims, and Presents and then boom, Amore! Valentine’s Day!

Bit By Bit, Piece by Piece

We are officially in the off season and James and I have some time to breathe and think about goals and projects for 2018. Part of that is marketing. The lodging industry is complex and getting more and more complicated with various online travel agencies (OTAs), social media, technology, competition, and other factors. So if …

Let it Snow Let it Snow Let It Snow

My first blog! I feel so grown up. It’s hard to believe we purchased the B&B only 4 months ago, it feels like a year has passed. In the Spring there will be blogs about restaurants and eating, kayaking and hiking, biking and sailing, but that time is not now. It’s December 1 and Winter …

Grape Nut Pudding

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to do a food blog. I guess because I’m not a chef and my previous career was all about wireless telecommunications and nothing about food. But after cooking thousands of breakfasts a year for guests I know when a plate comes back clean time after time, …
