Easter 2013 Resurrection Bay
What a glorious Easter Day it has been here in Seward, Alaska!
The sun came out and warmed us up, gracing us with temperatures in the low 40s. After a drive out Exit Glacier way, the sun had warmed the ice bed, and Lowell Point Road was a slow ride home.
Seems like everyone was out enjoying this beautiful day!
Hope your Easter was filled with much love!
Thank you Dear Reader, Namaste’, ❤ LAMP ❤
A few weeks ago we were blessed with temperatures in the 40s, and dry pavement on the highway; for the past week however, it’s done little other than snow or rain! Lynda has spent Good Friday working from home ~ although they plowed the roads on Lowell Point, the plow company for Angels Rest won’t get to us till late today, and the snow is too deep and heavy to try to trudge through to get to the office! Thank goodness for all the great technology we are graced with! It makes working from home easy! Easter weekend is always a slow weekend for lodging, and at this point the lack of plowing won’t cause any concern.
Spring is surely on the way though! There have been reports of Black bears, and a moose with calf; two days ago we saw a coyote on the north end of Lowell Point, and rabbit tracks in the Heron Roost parking area…..so the critters are a stirring!
Thank you to Paul for planting some bulbs in the greenhouse last fall! The photo in this post is one of the flowers from our greenhouse.
Come on Spring! We’re more than ready!!
Till next time, thank you dear reader! Namaste’
P.s. I always welcome your comments and questions!
We’re excited to share this wonderful part of Alaska with our customers and are looking to the 2013 tourism season with great excitement. Although the Gathering House was used by several families in 2012, this year will mark its first use by several groups reserving the entire property. We had a wonderful group of ladies this past February, participating in a Quilt Retreat, and this September we’re having a small wedding!
The Gathering House is a wonderful addition to our property and offering. We’ll dedicate a whole post to it, with photos, soon. 🙂 We’re hoping to expand our retreat business and are even considering sponsoring our own retreats for those interested in Conscious Evolution, a trending and very timely movement.
We’re going to be dedicating more time to writing, and are hoping to post numerous articles that will be of interest to our guests. In light of our fresh outlook, we’ve chosen a new theme which we hope you enjoy.
Last fall we were blessed to find, and excited to hire, a year round employee. Carmen, our Head Housekeeper, was born in Alaska, and has lived in Seward much of her life. Although we have participated in J-1 Student Exchange programs in the past, we are extremely excited to have found a second, seasonal employee in Mallory, a student in college in Idaho. She will join our Angels Rest Team, for most of the summer.
Till next time, thank you for your time!
