What terrific weather. The leaves are just changing. We got 2 inches of much needed rain at the end of last week. Our B&B was full all weekend into Tuesday. The caramel rolls and applesauce muffins and scones were all proclaimed fantastic. The desserts were apple crisp and crepes (raspberry filled) with the apples and raspberries coming from our yard, in fact the raspberries were only picked about an hour before they were served. Where else would you get that kind of freshness? We still had tomatoes for slicing to use as a garnish, yes, from our garden. Bill made his “almost getting famous” applesauce pancakes for 2 of the breakfasts. He uses a scratch buttermilk recipe (from Betty Crocker) and adds applesauce and a touch of cinnamon and vanilla and a couple of apple slices cooked in (an idea from mystery writer Joanne Fluke) – very tasty. He even made a poached egg – something new he has learned. All of our guests enjoyed the SeptOctober fest going on all month in Wabasha. The National Eagle center – www.nationaleaglecenter.org- is always a big hit too. I volunteer there one day a week and really enjoy it. Yesterday they had a bus load from Bismark ND I could visit with about the center and all of the eagles in the area. People just don’t expect this area to be so beautiful. I usually get in a pitch for The River Nest B&B too, since I work for free. This coming weekend is booked, but we do still have rooms available the next weekend (MEA weekend in MN).

With your help we moved up to page one when you google “best eagle watching in Mn”. Amazing.
