A Horizon of Sails

The annual Round the County Race is taking place this weekend.

Here is our view of it on this blustery day: a horizon full of multi-colored sails moving sedately (from our perspective!) in an easterly direction.  The west tip of Sucia Island to the north of us is visible.

Wonderful Winter: a few of my favorite things

A hot snapping wood fire.  A good book and a cozy chair.  Staring out the window at the wind and waves and the gray.  A steaming mug of sweet milky tea (Tetley, of course).  These are a few of my favorite winter things at NBI.

But winter outside is delicious too!

The brisk sea air that makes my blood leap up to my cheeks and tastes of salt and fir.  A walk on the beach, pebbles sliding and crunching under my feet, the wavelets sloshing and laughing.  The artful twists and curls of the trees limbs bared of their leafy garments.  The solitude of a fog-smothered horizon, making me feel insulated in peace.

I hope you can come and share the delights of winter at NBI! (And for stays of two or more nights in the month of February, you can enjoy a complimentary bottle of Island wine and local gourmet chocolate)

In a world of change…

Welcome to our first-ever North Beach Inn blog!

One of the things that sets NBI apart is the sense that this is a place where time stands still.  In this age of rapid change and constant motion (just look at the devices most of us carry in our pockets now!), having a place that maintains a link to the past, to an era of slower pace, is a rare and beautiful thing.  So even though blogging and on-line bookings have entered our repertoire of services at NBI, rest assured that when you next visit, the trees will still be growing sedately, the waves will be washing the driftwood and pebbles, and peace will greet you at the door to your cottage.
