Attention All Storm-Watchers -- See Irene Here!
There's no doubt that the Blue Shutters is the place to be on a great beach day, but did you know that this is also a fantastic place to watch a big storm? If the weather experts are correct, you'll have an opportunity to see for yourself on Sunday as Irene barrells through New England. You're invited to come join us -- snug and secure here at the Blue Shutters -- but if you can't, we encourage you to check out our webcam, which will remain focused on Good Harbor Beach throughout the storm. Here's a photo from this morning -- a picture that gives new meaning to the term "calm before the storm". There are folks on the beach, surfers in the water and guests like these enjoying breakfast -- and the view -- before heading down for some fun of their own (the webcam is there in the lower left corner, in a box on the window sill). It's a beautiful start to this Saturday, so while you might want to be here for Mother Nature's show tomorrow, you may be able to squeeze in a few hours at the beach. Stay tuned here for more updates and photos.
