A Very Early Spring Posted April 14, 2010 | Tags: , , ,

Here on the lake and all over New England we have been treated to a very early arrival of Spring. The ice on our lake “went out” in mid-March, a full month early. The interesting thing is that nobody is complaining about a short winter. It seems that the Mid-Atlantic coast got our winter.

We did have fun in what winter we did have. We had our retreat groups – spinners, quilters and church groups here for long weekends.

The SOPP quilters gave me an amazing gift of a gorgeous quilt they hand-made for me. Each quilter made a block and then it was all put together. I will enjoy it for years to come. I am so fortunate to have wonderful guests who become friends as they return year after year.

The loons are back along with the geese and ducks. It is such a treat to hear them with their haunting call. It’s still to early to tell if we will have eagle babies but our fingers are crossed.

Much of the winter was spent with remodeling. We have a new bathroom in the loon room and just finished a major remodel of the dining room in time for the Bucksport Bay Area Chamber of Commerce annual meeting.

We are getting ready for a wonderful season. This is such an exciting time of year as we help happy couples plan for weddings and meet new vacationers experiencing Maine for the first time.
