It’s March! The snow is still beautiful, although somewhat tiresome, and we have eagles!! In fact, a quarter mile downriver from The River Nest Bed and Breakfast, we have a new nest out in the backwaters. This is really exciting for us, because until now the closest nest required risking your life up along busy U.S. Highway 61 to get a really good view! Now viewers can stop along a low traffic road and get an eyeful! Bring your camera.
With March comes the popular Soar With the Eagles program at The National Eagle Center. Each week carries a new theme. The themes remaining are “The Flyway,” “The River,” and “The Eagle.” Be sure to check out their link since each theme includes interesting speakers and presentations from throughout the country.
This weekend (March 11-13) we also have the Wabasha-Kellogg Home, Garden, and Vacation Show. This year they’re adding local color with a cake “silent auction.” That alone will be high entertainment, since my brother the mayor and his Kellogg counterpart are baking their own cakes and having a competition between the towns. If you see a tea party–some wicked-looking chocolate mini-bundts on some antique snack plates, complete with fancy teas–please bid! Nope, they’re not my brother’s!
Once again, we invite you to visit our beautiful Southeast Minnesota and enjoy our hospitality here at The River Nest!
