This Memorial Day I feel truly humbled and thankful for the freedom we have in our country. I know we owe this wonderful way of life, that we sometimes take for granted, to all of our veterans. Thank you!
Since loosing my mother this past winter I find myself being appreciative of the little things in life and cherishing all of the wonderful family, friends and staff that we have around us. We were full this weekend at both of our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast, Brewster by the Sea Inn and Spa and the Captain Freeman Inn. My husband and I were a little concerned as we have been short handed since our J-1 students have not arrived yet. Happy to report that we had a spectacular weekend with happy guests and sunny weather. We are blessed to have a wonderful staff that work hard and are such fun people to be around. Yesterday’s breakfast is a perfect example. We had 22 people for breakfast at the Freeman and last minute heard that our young high school server, Claire, had come down with a bad virus. Her Mom Ann, who is a spa therapist at our other inn, Brewster by the Sea, came to the rescue. Thanks Ann!
Our wonderful chef Nick was in a devilish mood and had jazz playing on the radio. He was singing and dancing in the kitchen as he prepared our wonderful breakfast of fresh pineapple, apricot scones and croissant egg sandwiches. I was especially pleased with his new presentation of the main course.
I was able to get a little snap shot of his fine dancing but no words or pictures can truly describe his spontaneous dancing in our inn’s kitchen…….he told me afterwards that “food comes out better when you dance to it” Thanks Nick for making such wonderful breakfasts and teas for us at the Captain Freeman Inn.
Exhaling on Cape Cod and feeling very blessed this Memorial Day weekend.
