Auntie M’s: New Bakery and Lunch Spot Just Opened

Lucky us! A new restaurant just opened down the street from us. They offer made-from-scratch baked goods and Sleepy Monk coffee in the morning.  For lunch they have a lovely menu of sandwiches and pasta salads (that they make themselves – thank you!!).   During the cool mornings, the fire in the fireplace gives off a … Continued

We are ready!

The summer season starts with Memorial Weekend which is just around the corner! We are making final touches on our rooms, planting colorful flowers and making sure our systems are in place. Let the fun to begin!

The Sundial on the Prom

If you start at our end of the Seaside Promenade and head north, you’ll come across this sundial.  I still have yet to figure out how to use it correctly, but we always enjoy getting off our bikes, standing just so and checking our watch to see if the time is accurate.

Waking up to snow

Here is the view from my window this morning. The snow looks lovely! Of course, the snow is nearly all gone now that it is the afternoon. But we had a blast while it lasted.

Perfect Rainy Day Distraction: The Seaside Public Library

One of my favorite places to hang out at is the Seaside Public Library.  In 2009, they changed locations and moved into a brand new building.  The natural light is abundant, the people friendly, the computers are many and the book selection is diverse.
