It's Springtime in February at Boreas B&B in Long Beach, Washington!
February 20, 2010 by: Susan Goldsmith
The thermometers have been reading in the 70’s in the sun and in the 60’s in the shade and we are ever so grateful to celebrate this precious sunshine in our mild winter season. If we say this too loudly, winter will return, as gentle as it has been this season. So shhhhhh! It has snowed in March the last two years; just when we thought we had sailed through winter into springtime. Long Beach, Washington weather is tough to predict–and always a surprise–but thinking back the 15 seasons we’ve been here, this isn’t all that unusual for February!
I baked a Pineapple Toasted Macadamia Nut coffee cake for one of the pastry courses for our guests for tomorrow’s breakfast. Fine breakfast cuisine is our tradition at Boreas Inn and we hope that we rank with the best in the west at our romantic beach getaway in Long Beach, Washington! I will post the recipe on our website when I get a chance.
The mini-daffodils are so bright and hopeful on the front deck of the inn and the banners are bright against our residence. I have been fighting the urge to buy more spring plants–but know if I do, we will have a freeze. Guests are walking on the beach, exploring the lighthouses and dining at The Depot, Pelicano Restaurant and Jimella’s tonight for dinner. The best dining in the state of Washington is right here on the Peninsula. Lucky us!
We have rooms available for next weekend, the 26th and 27th of February–and even the Dunes Suite awaits your escape to the beach. The gray whales are cruising by and the North Head Lighthouse and the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center is a great place for spotting them! On occasion, they approach the jetty and scrape off their barnacles. Next weekend at the World Kite Museum, the Asian New Year Celebration continues with the spectacular kites of Malaysia and Singapore. The Kite Museum has the largest private collection of kites in the entire world and is well worth a visit–walking distance from Boreas!
So come dine at the source, sleep in the lap of luxury and play at the prettiest beach in the Northwest. Make each day a cause for celebration and we will be your co-conspirators in planning a quick getaway to Long Beach!
