A Father's Work is Never Done
Our new website is up as of a few hours ago, and I hope others agree that it does just what we set out to do...showcase our views of Good Harbor Beach and the unique character of our guest rooms. Since February we've worked day and night, weekdays and weekends, inside the Blue Shutters and out. As we approach the big Feast of St. Peter weekend (June 27) we're ready for guests in nearly all of our rooms -- just this weekend, we made great progress with our two twin apartments -- Port and Starboard -- which feature a separate bedroom, a full kitchen, a spacious living/dining area and very nice views from a back porch. We also played host to a four different groups -- including a couple from Connecticut who brought our first toddler (Victoria, who took a liking to "Grandma Mary" Sapienza) and a group of recent college grads who did some late night partying on Good Harbor Beach. All this, plus a weekend-long Father's Day celebration which included dinner at the Franklin Cafe, a lobster feast on the back deck and an emotional Mass at St. Anthony's Chapel on Eastern Point. A big thank you to Tina, Mike, Jamie, Haley and Christian (and wives Patty and Ann Marie) for making the Dads feel special. After the work winded down, we ended the night -- just an hour or so ago -- with drinks and conversation with our neighbors Tony and Pat Bertolino.
