Wow, we had a fun weekend at Belgravia! We had wonderful guests with great stories of love and even some first-time B&Bers…
Our Valentine’s Dinner was a great success with fun groups of people each of the two nights. The food was incredible and we thank Dan for providing such a beautiful meal – one couple enjoyed it so much that they’ve already booked for next year! Another couple stayed for two nights and we combined our ski package at Ski Wentworth with our Valentine Dinner for them. They spent the day skiing in the sunshine with ideal conditions and then had a private romantic anniversary/Valentine dinner in front of the fire. They’re thinking of making this an annual event and we hope they do!
In Olympic news, Hannah Kearney who won a gold medal for the US in Ladies’ Moguls on Saturday night is a niece of the former owner of our home and the cousin of our daughter Sarah’s godmother. How exciting for their family; as you can imagine, they are very proud!! (And so are we by association!) We have another connection to the Olympics which makes us very proud as well: “From Land and Sea”, a book of Nova Scotia Contemporary Landscape Artists, by our friend Dee Appleby, was chosen by the Nova Scotia Department of Tourism, Culture & Heritage as a gift from Nova Scotia to 60 delegates who will be visiting the Nova Scotia pavilion at Atlantic Canada House, on Granville Island, for the Olympics! Dee & I are in a book club together and I can’t wait to see her on Thursday night to tell her how excited we are for her! A small piece of trivia: Atlantic Canada House was named on of the Top Three Pavillions at the Olympics! (Not that that would surprise any Atlantic Canadians…)
Now that Valentine’s Day is over and it’s starting to get brighter in the mornings, I’m starting to think about Spring & Summer! We’ve been dreaming up some fun new warmer-weather packages, so stay tuned!
