Local Weather (Subject to Change!)
Get out those sundresses and shorts, we’ve got some perfect summer weather ahead! Today’s high is scheduled to top off at 81 degrees, with a calm afternoon breeze.
Welcome back to Basin Harbor, friends! We are excited to see Stuart & Angie Kensinger from Houston, TX along with Philip. They will join Angie’s sister Eliza Webb and her husband Mark Eppli from Whitefish Bay, WI with Maddie and Zoe. Their friends Hailey Bechtol and Brent, with Pete, Mac, and Cal are also here from Boston, MA. From Nashville, TN come Dr. Robert Hoover, Jr. and Dr. Elizabeth Hoover with Robert and Brinton. Marc & Pam Hambley of Hingham, MA are here for some summer fun with Charlotte and Eric, as are Mr. & Mrs. John Seel from Williamsburg, VA. Cohasset, MA brings George & Mary McGoldrick and family, and from Wyomissing, PA arrives Edward & Catherine Lentz, with the whole gang: Sydney, Tyler, Mackey, and Sophie. Basin Harbor welcomes James & Mia Holman of Bryn Mawr, PA along with Mary Kate and Laura. From Laurel Hollow, NY we are happy to see Ted & Rebecca Bahr, as well as our friends Joseph & Valerie Sperber of East Williston, NY. Welcome back! Laurence & Kathy Morris from Sea Bright, NJ are joining us this week with Jacob and Charlotte, and it’s nice to see Peter Demong and his family again, from just down the road in Middlebury, VT. How wonderful to have you all here! We also have some special BHC Happy Birthday wishes to bestow on the lovely Meredith Robbins, who will be celebrating her day at the Harbor.
Basin Harbor is delighted to welcome our Family Reunion groups this week! We are pleased to have the Lynch Family today, as well is the Sheesley Family from Florida. Also with us is the Snow Family. We’re glad to have you all here!
What a Bingo game we had on Thursday night! Carley from Vergennes, VT carried off the first prize for Regular Bingo, followed by Thom of Conifer, CO who won X Marks the Spot. Corners Bingo resulted in a 4-way tie between Sarah of Carmel, CA, Bill from Red Bank, NJ, Larry of Brooklyn, NY, and James from an undisclosed location. Our Postage Stamp winner of the night was Beth from Dublin, OH, while Henry from London, England gathered his prize for Picture Frame. Cara from Boston, MA scooped up the pot for High Stakes, and Miles of St. Petersburg, FL scored big for his Losers Bingo win. That lucky duck Grace, from Rowayton, CT, championed the Blackout Bingo with an extra $208 bucks to take home. Way to go, Bingo Champions!
Prepare your tastebuds! Imagine an intimate dinner with lobster potage, baby artichokes, homemade tagliatelle, New York sirloin, and grapefruit sorbet. Imagine each dish paired perfectly with a red or white wine. Imagine yourself sitting at the Chef’s Table Wine Dinner this Monday night, where your gastronomic imagination becomes reality! BHC’s own Director of Finance (and Palate Enthusiast Extraordinaire) Joss Vandal will host the dinner, which features the vines of Italy this week. Space is limited for this special event, offered Monday only, so be sure to sign up in advance with the concierge.
If an entire harbor of kids floating around in homemade cardboard box boats duct-taped together doesn’t make you smile, then what will? Visit our next-door neighbor, the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, for an exciting weekend at the Small Boat Festival! Saturday and Sunday events will include a 3-mile Lake Champlain Challenge Race for the paddlers among us, the infamous Duct Tape Regatta, and music by Rick Norcross. Fun for all!
After a whole week of summer delights at Basin Harbor, chances are you have a lot of great photos! How about sharing some of your favorites? Send your best BHC pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll put them on our Facebook page!
