Blue Shutters Birdwatching -- Jan 30 - Feb 1
None of us at the Blue Shutters considered ourselves birdwatchers -- before we arrived here on Good Harbor Beach. Now we spend hours watching the birds of all kinds zip across the yard, swoop across the marsh and sail over the beach. That's why we were so excited to hear about the Cape Ann Winter Birding Weekend, January 30through February 1 -- and why we were quick to offer a special package for the birdwatchers expected to visit Cape Ann later this month. We're offering 10% off any room, plus a "welcome package" that includes a bottle of Smoking Loon wine and a selection of cheeses as well as complimentary continental breakfast and afternoon hot chocolate and cookies. According to the experts, Cape Ann is known to birdwatchers worldwide for its exciting concentrations of winter seabirds. Working with the Mass Audubon Society, the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce has planned a weekend filled with opportunity for bird lovers of all skill levels to join expert guides on a tour of Cape Ann's birding hot spots. If you're a birdwatcher -- or if you'd like to give it a try -- check out this special weekend on Cape Ann. And of course, plan to rest up at the Blue Shutters.
