Here we are at the 24th of March already. After several weeks of lesser eagle activity, we have had a lot lately, especially in the mornings. It seems they are slowly moving back farther north to the summer breeding areas. The 3 nests close to us all have birds sitting on them. Do not know if they have eggs. The snow has melted to the point where things are brown, ugly and dirty. We need some heat for green, but this winter just will not give up–6 degrees yesterday am and 12 today. The coming weekend looks promising, but that could change. (The picture with the 3 eagles flying got over 1500 hits on facebook!)
Two weekends ago we hosted a young couple making their first visit at a B&B. We do have a relaxing, romantic setting, and it worked out great for them. Peter proposed to Ashley, and she accepted! They proudly announced it at breakfast Sunday morning. We wish them the best, and hope they spend the honeymoon here!!
Three weekends ago we were booked up and both couples called on Thursday and cancelled, leaving us empty for the weekend. That is a first, and hopefully a LAST. This past weekend we were full and next weekend we are full again. SOAR at The National Eagle Center ended this past weekend. They really draw the people into Wabasha and the area as they will have 800 to 1300 people visit a day on the weekends of SOAR. Watch for info about it next January and plan ahead.
I keep forgetting to let people know that we are right on the state MRT, which stands for Mississippi River Trail, a marked biking route along the Mississippi River and it goes right by our door. We would make a good over night stop.
The next big event to get your bookings in for is the 100 mile garage sale the first weekend in May. We have Thursday bookings, but not Friday and Saturday yet. We are right in the middle of the action-you can garage sale all day then come relax in the jacuzzi with a glass of wine afterward.
We do enjoy hosting couples and finding out what other lives are all about, and look forward to meeting YOU.
An eagle just landed in the “flare” tree out front. Gotta get my camera. Until next time……. Bill
