Local Weather (Subject to Change!)
It will be mostly sunny today, with a chance for showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. We’ll have high temperatures near 80.
We are very happy to welcome Dr. Teresa Thomas & family from Fitchburg, MA. Also welcome back to Scott & Gretchen Snyder along with their children Griffen & Dylan. All joining us from Rye, NH! We are so lucky to be able to greet our returning guests each year and meet all our new guests!
Get out early this morning with our naturalist Matt Witten. He’ll be leading two walks around property this morning. He will give you the low-down on our abundant trees & birds!
Do you love to stop and smell the roses? Come join our fabulous florist, Claire, as she teaches you how to put together your own arrangement to take home or decorate your dinner table with! Space is limited, so make sure you get signed up at the Concierge desk for this Floral Arranging Class!
Need to get out of the rain this afternoon? Stop in at the Breezeway gift shop in the Main Lobby. We have comfy Basin Harbor shirts and sweaters, wonderful toys and trinkets, and delicious goodies! And speaking of goodies…swing by the Harbor Store for a creemee (that’s soft-serve ice cream for the out-of-staters)! There are toys and fun stuff for the beach and the outdoors, along with lots of goodies to keep you fueled. The Golf Shop has more clothing to soothe your shopping addictions. We have everything you might need to enjoy your resort vacation!
Colin is at the pool and ready to show you how to swim and dive like a pro! Our Diving Clinic is this afternoon. Let Colin help you perfect a straightforward dive or something fancier. Have a chat with him poolside to set up private swimming lessons!
Looking for a mellow after dinner activity? We’ve got you covered with Movie Night in the Club Room. We are showing the Croods tonight. This is a hilarious animated movie about your average prehistoric family who embark on a wild adventure to new lands unknown!
Just a reminder! You are on vacation, so slow down. There’s no need to zoom around. And with all of the children scampering around property it is just plain safer to drive slowly, or even just stroll around!
This afternoon’s Nature Walk with Amber has been cancelled due to the clumsiness of our instructor (minor injury) and possible thunderstorms. Instead we would like to invite you to the Club Room for a craft project! Did you know…100 million plastic bags go into the landfills each week, and a plastic bag takes 450 years to biodegrade?! Help stop the waste by decorating your own environmentally friendly shopping bag this afternoon!
Tonight is another special in our Wine Dinner Series. We are happy to have guest hosts Sean Rup & Justin Anderson here to introduce you to the amazing Iconic Wines of California. Enjoy these spectacular wines along with the special menu that our chef has prepared just for the evening. Space is limited, so see the Concierge soon to make your reservation or for more information!
