Happy Monday!

February 28, 2011

Good Morning,

It’s chilly today here on the Cape.  We have a wind advisory going until 7PM tonight, so you can probably imagine what it’s like here by the water (it’s not as bad as Friday though)!  There is a light rain currently, and they predict rain all day.  Definitely seems to be a good day to sit by a fire while reading a good book, and drinking some tea or hot cocoa!!  I’m sure the spoiled guests at Captain’s Quarters are enjoying the fireplace in their rooms today!  Hope everyone has a wonderful week! 🙂
