Spring of 2021

I’m realizing that much of last spring and early summer is a blur.

As local businesses start to re-open for the season, I am trying to remember how we all managed to navigate the shut down and ever changing restrictions.  It’s incredible that most businesses survived…and by mid to late summer, even thrived!

2021 is off to a better start.

Masks around town are the norm.  Outdoor dining will continue to be the preference of many.  My office window remains open (and thankfully, improved temperatures so I’m not freezing out my co-workers!)

Like all of you, we have adjusted, and continue to be so grateful to maintain our shore economy!

Easter Treats!

Wow…that was a productive beach walk before work this morning!

We walked down just in time for the sunrise- beautiful.  Saw a few dolphins actively feeding, with seagulls and osprey nearby to join them for breakfast.  A pair of oyster catchers squawked as we walked along the water’s edge.

I found 2 nice pieces of sea glass…and then we noticed odd prints in the sand as we headed south.  Even through it seemed impossible, the “foot” prints looked like those from 2 horses.  But that couldn’t be, right?

We followed the prints for a bit, and then glanced up toward the dune line to see a resting seal!  He (or she) was well camouflaged with the brown dune grass, and we were careful not to disturb the seal’s nap.  We zoomed in for a quick photo and continued on following the prints.

And then the horses appeared!  2 men were riding back along the hard sand and in the gully.  They stopped to say hello- and I mentioned that this was a first!  They wished us a Happy Easter and literally, rode into the sunrise :)

This sounds like an April Fool’s post, yet we have pictures to verify.  What a morning!

Easter weekend is the unofficial start of the season at the shore.  And based on rental reservations booked so far, 2021 will be busy.

We are happy to see our summer neighbors return to open their homes; and we are excited for additional restaurant options!

Wishing you a peaceful holiday weekend…

Rental Property Owners- preparing for 2021

The 2021 summer rental calendar is starting weeks earlier than a typical season. And very likely, we will see the rentals extend through the fall.

Owners are scheduling spring cleaning, power washing, landscape clean up, etc. to make sure everything is ready for the first guests.

Thinking ahead: how will your property fare by mid-season?

This is the year to make arrangements for extra cleaning and/or an in person visit by you or a family member to handle the items that aren’t included in standard change over cleanings:

1) Ceiling fans

2) Air conditioning registers

3) Deck/porch furniture

4) Trash cans (inside and outside containers)

5) Wash small area rugs, and spot clean carpets

6) Tidy the garage or beach item storage areas

One Year Later…What a Year

I needed a place for my random thoughts and pictures.

In addition to this blog and my Twitter account, I’ve kept a journal since last March, and created a Shutterfly book at the end of 2020.

I’m glad I documented this crazy time.  And I’m SO grateful for vaccines and the feeling of hope!
