Three nights, end of August, 2011

We’ve had a good season, met some new people and welcomed back returnees. Even had a little wedding on Frog’s deck in early August! Right now we have three nights open a couple of weeks from now.
Nights of August 29. 30 & 31 in Frog for up to four people. Kids welcome. (Sorry, no dogs due to allergies.) $175/night, plus 9.8% tax. Next openings begin September 10. Go to for contact information.


Mo’ Snow

It’s snowing as I write this and it’s hard to keep a sense of humor about it. The photo was taken four days ago and it hasn’t gotten above freezing since. Tomorrow, though, it’s supposed to warm up and rain. In fact, the overnight low temperature is supposed to be four degrees warmer than now. Weird. Well, I’m ready for warmer and don’t mind the rain. Probably lost all the seedlings in the garden. Luckily, I have a lot more seeds. Just not much patience. Sybil, the outdoor cat of many personalities, has morphed into an indoor cat who prefers sleeping under the wood stove. Othercat, the other outdoor cat, gets cabin fever after about five seconds inside the house. I don’t know where he goes to get warm. I have to keep changing his water dish because it freezes pretty quickly outside. So do I. Well, so much for maritime climates. We’ve got lettuce seedlings and cipollini onion starts sitting by the stove waiting for spring planting, whenever that is.

(All rates are subject to 9.8% tax.) Right on the beach, Frog has two double beds, 1 bath, a fully equipped kitchen, and a phenomenal view.
